The temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity and magnetoresistance of Xe-ion-beam-sputtered Fe-Cr multilayers has been investigated. The electrical resistivity between 5 and 300 K in the fully ferromagnetic state, obtained by applying a field beyond the saturation field ${(H}_{\mathrm{sat}})$ necessary for the antiferromagnetic- (AF-) ferromagnetic (FM) field-induced transition, shows evidence of spin-disorder resistivity as in crystalline Fe and an s-d scattering contribution (as…

Magnetic scattering in Fe-Cr multilayers in the ferromagnetic state at low temperatures

We report here an interpretation of the electrical resistivity (ρ) below 15 K of two Fe–Cr multilayers (30 layers of 20 A Fe/10 and 12 A Cr) produced by Xe ion-beam sputter deposition. These

Evidence of spin-wave demagnetization in Fe–Cr giant magnetoresistance multilayers

The temperature dependence of the saturation magnetization of Xe ion-beam sputtered Fe–Cr multilayers has been measured between 5 and 300K in the presence of a field greater than the saturation field

Extraordinary hall effect in Fe-Cr giant magnetoresistive multilayers

We show that for giant magnetoresistive Fe-Cr multilayer samples, the scaling law for the extraordinary Hall constant, R S ∼ρ" gives unrealistically large values of n(n=2.8-3.3) if we use the

Local magnetic study for cluster-layered Fe/Cr nanostructures

Local magnetic structures of cluster-layered Fe/Cr thin films are studied by X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) and extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS). The magnetic moment of Fe

A model for temperature dependent resistivity of metallic superlattices

The temperature dependent resistivity of metallic superlattices, to first order approximation, is assumed to have same form as bulk metal, ρ(T) = ρo + aT, which permits describing these structures as

Effect of Pressure on the Giant Magnetoresistance in Co/Cu Magnetic Multilayers(Condensed Matter : Electronic Structure, Electrical, Magnetic and Optical Properties)

The effect of pressure and magnetic field on the temperature dependent electrical resistivity ρ( T ) of the [Co(1.02 nm)/Cu( t Cu nm)] 25 magnetic multilayers (MML) with t Cu =0.76 [ferromagnetic (...

Crossover Antiferro-Superparamagnetism and Related Kondo-Like Anomalies of Resistivity in Clustered Fe/Cr Multilayers

The magnetic and magnetoresistive properties of nanostructured Fe/Cr multilayers with ultra-thin Fe layers (the nominal Fe thickness tFe is down to 0.3 Å) have been investigated at low temperatures
