Magnetization reversal in micron-sized stripes of epitaxial (110) YFe2 films

Abstract:

Arrays of micron-sized stripes of epitaxial (110) Laves phase YFe 2 films have been fabricated using a UV laser direct write system and etching process. The magnetization reversal of the stripe arrays in the sample plane is investigated by magneto-optical Kerr magnetometry. The measured MO Kerr hysteresis loops reveal that a uniaxial magnetic anisotropy can be induced in the materials by the shape of the stripes. The easy axis is found to be rigidly confined parallel to the length axis of the...
