X-ray and soft x-ray photoelectron spectra were taken on Fe2VAl samples. The Fe−3s spectra show a shoulder on the higher binding energy side of the main peak, split by ≈4.7 eV. Based on current understanding of core-level multiplet splitting in transition-metal compounds, we believe this is direct evidence of a local moment in Fe2VAl.
