A study was made of single-layer Fe-Ni-Cr Elinvar films ranging in thickness from 400 to 10,000 Å and prepared by the thermal sputtering process. For the first time the domain structure of these alloys was examined and found to vary depending on the technological process conditions as well as on the film thickness. The coercive force H is shown here as a function of the specimen thickness, with a maximum value H = 32 Oe in a 640 Å film. The hysteresis loop of Elinvar films has uniaxial anisotropy.
