Abstract

The magnetic properties of (111) Cu/Fe multilayers grown on Cu underlayers of several thickness (2000-500-50 Å) on cleaved mica have been investigated by Mössbauer spectroscopy and SQUID magnetometry. The analysis of experimental results suggests that 2.5 monolayers of ψ-Fe interfaced with Cu evolves partially from paramagnetic to ferromagnetic states as the Cu underlayer thickness is reduced to 50 Å and partially from weak to strong antiferromagnetism.
