The aim of this long-term proposal is to develop spin polarized high-resolution hard x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (SPIN-HAXPES) technique, which is expected to play an essential role in investigating materials concerning spintronics devices. The review committee agrees that this bulk-sensitive spin-resolved technique is essential to investigate electronic and magnetic structures of buried layers and interfaces of such devices and appreciates the potential impact on the field. The committee appreciates also the HAXPES results, as well as new developments such as in-operand HAXPES, obtained by the group in 2012A and B. The committee, however, has a great concern about the significant delay of the main part of the project i.e., "SPIN"-HAXPES. In 2012A and B, the group faced the problems of a broken power supply and a broken detector and as a result they could not perform the planned spin-resolved experiments. In 2013A, the group succeeded to make the overall system (Scienta analyser + SPLEED-type spin detector) work, but found extremely low counts and consequently could not observe spin-resolved signals. The construction of the 2D detection system is also delaying significantly. Although the committee concludes that it is appropriate to give another year for this long-term project, noting the significance and importance of the realization of SPIN-HAXPES, the committee strongly requests to the group to prepare the experiments carefully, testing the power supply, the lens system, and the detectors prior to each beam time. Also the committee requests the group to estimate the count rates of the spin-resolved signals based on the cross sections, available photon numbers, estimated transmission and detection efficiency for the entire system, and define the most reasonable photon energy for bulk-sensitive SPIN-HAXPES.
