Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy of PdCo and PtCo based multilayers


Introduction Pd/Co and Pt/Co multilayers(MLs) exhibit large magnetic anisotropy with the easy axis perpendicular to the film plane.(1,2] The anisotropy is considered to origInate from the interface of the bilayers. The physical origin of th.e interface anisotropy can be classified into some categories.(3] One of them is the magnetocrystalline surface… (More)
