The L/S ratio of samarium has been determined by X-ray magnetic scattering from a thick epitaxial film, via the azimuthal dependence of the scattered intensity. This new method allows a direct determination of L/S in antiferromagnetic systems where charge scattering is not negligible at the position of the magnetic signal. The Russell -Saunders predictions fall within the accuracy of our results.
