Circular magnetic X-ray dichroism (CMXD) measurements have been applied to Fe(30 Å)/Cr(10 Å) multilayer film and Fe88Cr12 alloy. From the comparison with a Fe88Cr12 alloy, it is concluded that the orbital polarization of 4p electrons in the Cr layers of the Fe(30 Å)/Cr(10 Å) multilayer film stems from the effects inherent in the multilayer system.
