    Abstract

    Combining RHEED system with an electron spin detector, we have observed the spin-polarization of secondary electrons emitted from the transition metal and alloy surfaces during the RHEED measurement for the first time. The strong temperature as well as angle dependences and the magnetic hysteresis give the evidence that the observed polarization reflects the magnetic domain structure at the surface.
