We present temperature-dependent measurements via the element-specific XMCD technique for Co/Cu/Ni trilayers for cases where the ordering temperature of Co is lower than the one of Ni. Our work focuses mainly on the influence of the interlayer coupling on the shape of the temperature-dependent magnetization curves of Ni. By electing 1.3 ML of Co and 4 ML of Ni we get a lower T(C)(Co) approximately 90 K and a higher T(C)(Ni) approximately 180 K. The crossing of the M(T) curves leads to a… CONTINUE READING
