Ferrimagnetism in an Ising Bilayer Film with a Transverse Field and Nonmagnetic Interlayers
The phase diagram and total magnetization of an Ising bilayer film with nonmagnetic interlayers are investigated by the use of the effective field theory with correlations. The system is consisted of two spin-1/2 magnetic layers where one of them is canted from the easy-axis (or z-) direction due to an applied transverse field, and they are coupled by an indirect exchange interaction. It is examined whether the system may exhibit some characteristic features of ferrimagnetism, such as a compensation point. The effects of nonmagnetic layers on them are clarified.
