Structural and magnetic properties of Gd/Fe multilayers grown by pulsed laser deposition

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This work investigates structural and magnetic properties of Gd/Fe multilayered thin films grown by pulsed laser deposition onto Si (001) substrates at room temperature. The Fe layer thickness is varied from 70 to 150 nm and its effect on structural and magnetic properties of Gd/Fe multilayers has been explored. The samples have a 10 nm Ag capping layer to prevent oxidation during the processing. Two magnetization saturation plateaus were observed in the magnetization vs field isotherm at 290 K, in parallel configuration and these plateau values correspond to that of MFe and MFe + MGd.
