Mössbauer spectroscopy study of interfaces for spintronics

  • Conference paper
ISIAME 2008

Abstract

The submonolayer sensitivity and element-specificity of conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy, combined with the use of 57Fe enriched tracer layers, enable to carefully investigate thin films and interfaces at the atomic-scale. This paper reports on the main achievements we obtained so far in the study of structural, chemical, and magnetic properties of a variety of interfaces between oxides and Fe-based films having potential interest in the field of spintronics.
