Magnetisation reorientation in ultra-thin Fe films on Cu(100) upon deposition of Co
Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford University, CA 94309, USA.Journal of Synchrotron Radiation (Impact Factor: 2.74). 04/2001; 8(Pt 2):463-5. DOI: 10.1107/S090904950001863X
Ultra thin films of Fe deposited on the (100) surface of a Cu single crystal exhibit a net perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. The addition of very low coverages of Co results in the easy magnetic direction reorienting into the film plane. This behavior is in contrast to the addition of similar amounts of Fe, whereupon the ferromagnetic response vanishes. This result is discussed in terms of the anisotropy energies derived from the spectroscopic data.
