The exchange bias coupling at ferro-/antiferromagnetic interfaces of epitaxially grown Co/CoO bilayers can be intentionally enhanced and controlled by diluting the antiferromagnetic CoO layer, i.e., by introducing ~i! nonmagnetic substitutions (Co12xMgxO) or ~ii! Co deficiencie (Co12yO). All intentional nonmagnetic cations or defects were placed away from… CONTINUE READING
