An element-selective investigation of magnetism on carbon in the vicinity of atoms in a multilayer is reported. We utilize resonant magnetic reflectivity of circularly polarized synchrotron radiation which allows us to distinguish unambiguously the local magnetism on carbon from that on through individual core-level excitations. Clear magnetic signals of carbon are obtained by exploiting the standing-wave technique. Hysteresis loops of individually excited and atoms demonstrate ferromagnetism of at room temperature with a moment of induced by adjacent atoms.
