Magnetic Transitions in Fe/Cr Superlattices

  • Charles H. Sellers (a1), Yoshihiro Shiroishi (a2), John E. Hilliard (a1) and John B. Ketterson (a3)


Several series of multilayered Fe/Cr films have been studied, each with a fixed thickness of Fe and several thicknesses of Cr. The coer-civity and in plane anisotropy field were found to increase abruptly for larger Cr thicknesses. The origin of this change in behavior may involve a paramagnetic/antiferromagnetic transition in the Cr.
