Ferromagnetic Metallic Multilayers: From Elementary Sandwiches to Superlattices

  • J. P. Renard
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 163)

Abstract

The elaboration and the structural characterization of ultrathin films and multilayers of Ni and Co on Au (111) are described. From in situ resistivity measurements, and ex situ grazing X-ray interference and transmission electron microscopy, the samples show sharp interfaces and good crystalline coherence perpendicular to the layer. The magnetic properties of the films are reviewed. In particular, the variation of the Curie temperature of Ni films versus thickness and the one of Ni bilayers versus gold spacing layer thickness, is studied. The hcp Co films show a strong perpendicular anisotropy evidenced by SQUID magnetometry and ferromagnetic resonance.
