Panels (a) and (b) show the Fe L3-edge X-ray absorption images for h+ and h-, respectively. The Fe L3-edge XMCD image obtained from the subtraction of (a) and (b) is shown in (c). Panels (d) and (e) show the helicity-averaged X-ray absorption images at the Fe L3- and Nd M4-edges, respectively. Panels (f) and (g) show the Fe L3-edge XMCD images at applied fields of +8 T and −8 T, respectively. Red and blue colors in the XMCD images indicate that is positive and negative, respectively. The x- and y-directions coincide with those in Fig. 1. The XMCD images in panels (c), (f) and (g) have been normalized by their respective helicity-averaged X-ray absorption images.
