We have studied the electronic structure of the Mn-based diluted magnetic semiconductors and the ordered Mn surface alloys using photoemission spectroscopy and configuration interaction (CI) calculation. As for the Mn-based diluted magnetic semiconductors, the electronic-structure parameters obtained from the CI analysis show systematic variation with expected chemical trends. The CI picture gives a systematic description of the d-d absorption spectra, the exchange constants between the 3d spins and host band states, and the donor and acceptor ionization energies of the diluted magnetic semiconductors. The photoemission spectra of the ordered surface alloys CuMn/Cu(100) and NiMn/Ni(100) show correlation satellites similar to the impurity Mn atom in solids. It is shown that the CI analysis can describe the correlation satellites driven by the reduced dimensionality in the ordered surface alloy systems.
