The properties of a magnetically ordered buried Fe oxide layer are presented. This oxide has a room-temperature magnetization exceeding that of [Formula presented] by 42% and of [Formula presented] by 89%. The oxide consists of a component (70%) with a net moment of [Formula presented] ion, while the remaining spins yield no net moment. The oxide magnetization is stabilized in part by the proximate Fe metal.
