We investigate the transport properties of some 4d transition metal (i.e. Ru, Rh and Pd) thin films fabricated on Ag(111) based on first principles calculation. We calculate the conductance observed by double tipped scanning tunnelling microscope and find that the conductances through Ru and Rh thin films are majority spin polarized. We discuss these results and compare them with our previous study for Fe thin films. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
