Abstract

The structural and magnetic characteristics of Fe/Si bilayer and multilayer films with nanometer-thick layers obtained by thermal deposition in ultrahigh vacuum have been studied by methods of small-angle X-ray scattering, electron spectroscopy, and magnetometry. It is established that the mechanisms involved in the formation of Fe/Si and Si/Fe interfaces are different.
