Structural Coherence and Magnetic Coupling in Fe/Si

  • C.L. Foiles (a1), M.R. Franklin (a1) and R. Loloee (a1)


A number of studies have inferred the presence of an Fe-silicide in Fe/Si multilayers. Our transmission electron diffraction data provide direct evidence for the presence of an Fe-silicide. Despite similarities in structural coherence and saturation magnetization behavior for Fe/Si and Fe/{FeSi}, direct evidence for Fe-silicide only occurs for the Fe/{FeSi} multilayers.
