Magnetic Anisotropy in Modulated Nd-Fe Multilayers
Rare-Earth-Transition Metal (RE-TM) amorphous thin films have recently attracted considerable attention [1,2,3] not only because of basic physical interest but also as a technologically useful material for perpendicular magnetic recording. On the other hand, Nd-Fe based alloys are the best permanent magnets up to date and their main phase Nd2Fe14B has a layer-like structure. So compositionally modulated Nd-Fe films can help to understand the basic mechanisms responsible for the strong perpendicular anisotropy found in Nd-Fe thin films.
