Valence band photoemission with photon energies around the Mn2p excitation threshold has been used to study the development of nanowires catalyzed by MnAs particles. A gradual change in the spectra with increasing nanowire length is observed, such that the resonant photoemission eventually dominates over the Auger decay channel. The change is ascribed to dilution of Mn, showing that Mn is transferred from the MnAs particles into the nanowires. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
