The interlayer magnetic coupling of iron layers as a function of the chromium spacer thickness and temperature has been studied for three-layer epitaxial Fe/Cr/Fe films by the methods of Kerr magnetometry and Mandelstam-Brillouin scattering. The results obtained indicate that the short-period component of the interlayer exchange is related to the spin density wave in the chromium spacer.
