Uniaxial magnetic anisotropy in nanostructured Co/Cu(001): from surface ripples to nanowires.

Abstract

We have investigated the correlation between morphology and magnetic anisotropy in nanostructured Co films on Cu(001). The formation of nanoscale ripples by ion erosion is found to deeply affect the magnetic properties of the Co film. A surface-type uniaxial magnetic anisotropy with easy axis parallel to the ripples is observed. The origin of the magnetic… (More)
