The X-ray photoelectron diffraction method shall be further explored with experiments with resonant excitation of core electrons. We aim to increase the sensitivity of the method by at least two orders of magnitude. If circularly polarized light is used the magnetisation and structural information may be obtained in a single experiment. The method will be applied for molecular spintronics systems on ferromagnetic substrates, where the magnetisation may be switched back an forth.
