Here we report a photoemission study of the Fe intercalation underneath a graphene layer on Ni(111). The process of intercalation was monitored by means of x-ray photoemission of corresponding core levels as well as ultraviolet photoemission of the graphene-derived states in the valence band. Thin fcc Fe layers (2–5 ML thickness) at the interface between a graphene capping layer and Ni(111) form epitaxial films passivated from the reactive environment.
