We study the electronic structure and magnetic properties of epitaxial (Ni$$_{1-x}$$Co$$_{x}$$)Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$(111) layers with thicknesses $$d$$ = 1.7 - 5.2 nm grown on Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$(111)/Si(111) structures. We revealed the crystallographic (octahedral $$O_{h}$$ or tetrahedral $$T_{d}$$) sites and the valences of the Fe, Co, and Ni cations using experimental soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectra and configuration-interaction cluster-model calculation.
