Bending effect on the magnetic anisotropy in 20 nm Co2FeAl Heusler thin film grown on Kapton® has been studied by ferromagnetic resonance and glued on curved sample carrier with various radii. The results reported in this Letter show that the magnetic anisotropy is drastically changed in this system by bending the thin films. This effect is attributed to the interfacial strain transmission from the substrate to the film and to the magnetoelastic behavior of the Co2FeAl film. Moreover, two…
