title = "Induced magnetism of carbon atoms at the graphene/Ni(111) interface",
abstract = "We report an element-specific investigation of electronic and magnetic properties of the graphene/Ni(111) system. Using x-ray magnetic circular dichroism, the occurrence of an induced magnetism of the carbon atoms in the graphene layer is observed. We attribute this magnetic moment to the strong hybridization between C pi and Ni 3d valence band states. The net magnetic moment of carbon in the graphene layer is estimated to be in the range of 0.05-0.1 mu(B) per atom.",
