Abstract

We have investigated the magnetic arrangment of 3d transition-metal stepped surface by using a self-consistent real-space tight-binding method. As expected, the presence of steps modifies locally the properties of a transition-metal surface. We emphasized the influence of atomic environment. We found for the (100)-Fe surface, an enhancement of the magnetic moments of the external edge of this step as compared to the flat surface. The results are not very sensitives to the step length. More striking is the case of the (100)-V stepped surface where atoms at the external edge display a large magnetic moment.
