Abstract A series of Si(1 0 0)/SiN x (75 nm)/[Co(1 nm)/Au( t Au )] 30 multilayers has been prepared with magnetron sputtering. The samples were examined with ex situ X-ray diffraction and the collected spectra were fitted using the suprex refinement program. The structural parameters obtained were in good agreement with recent investigation by means of transmission and high-resolution microscopy. The X-ray analysis was used to estimate the strain profile as a function of the Au layer thickness… CONTINUE READING
