In this work, we comprehensively investigate and discuss the structural, magnetostatic, dynamic, and magnetoresistive properties of epitaxial Co/Mo superlattices. The magnetization of the Co sublayers is coupled antiferromagnetically with a strength that depends on the thickness of the nonmagnetic Mo spacer. The magnetization and magnetoresistance hysteresis loops clearly reflect interlayer exchange coupling and the occurrence of uniaxial magnetic anisotropy induced by the strained Co sublayers…

Study of Spin–Orbit Interactions and Interlayer Ferromagnetic Coupling in Co/Pt/Co Trilayers in a Wide Range of Heavy-Metal Thickness

In the investigated devices, Pt is used as a source of the spin current and as a nonmagnetic spacer with variable thickness, which enables the magnitude of the interlayer ferromagnetic exchange coupling to be effectively tuned.



Anisotropic magnetoresistance in ferromagnetic 3d alloys

The anisotropic magnetoresistance effect in 3d transition metals and alloys is reviewed. This effect, found in ferromagnets, depends on the orientation of the magnetization with respect to the

Synthetic Antiferromagnetic Coupling Between Ultrathin Insulating Garnets

The use of magnetic insulators is attracting a lot of interest due to a rich variety of spin-dependent phenomena with potential applications to spintronic devices. Here we report ultra-thin yttrium

Tuning static and dynamic properties of FeGa/NiFe heterostructures

In this work, the frequency-dependent magnetic properties of sputtered Galfenol/Permalloy (Fe85Ga15/Ni81Fe19 or FeGa/NiFe) magnetic multilayers were examined to tailor their magnetic softness, loss

Iron doping influence on interlayer magnetic coupling and magnetoresistance in Co/MoFe/Co films

Interlayer Exchange Coupling in Asymmetric Co − Fe / Ru / Co − Fe Trilayers Investigated with Broadband Temperature-Dependent Ferromagnetic Resonance

We report on a comprehensive study of the interlayer exchange coupling in CoFe(5nm)/Ru(x)/CoFe(8nm) trilayers (x=0.8...2.8 nm), using broadband ferromagnetic resonance. A systematic frequency

Self-similar magnetoresistance of Fibonacci ultrathin magnetic films

We study numerically the magnetic properties (magnetization and magnetoresistance) of ultrathin magnetic films (Fe/Cr) grown following the Fibonacci sequence. We use a phenomenological model which
