The exchange bias and magnetic anisotropies in a Co layer on a single-crystalline FeF2 film have been determined between 30 and 300 K. By postulating that the coupling between the ferromagnet and the antiferromagnet persists above the Néel temperature (T(N)) we develop a model that quantitatively describes the exchange bias and the anisotropies over the… CONTINUE READING
