Layer-dependent magnetic-moment distribution in an epitaxial double spin valve structure: Si(001)/Cu/FeNi/Cu/Co/Cu/FeNi/Cu

Abstract:

Polarized neutron reflectivity was used to determine, layer selectively, the magnetic moments, spin orientations, and thicknesses of an epitaxial double spin valve structure of the form Si(001)/Cu/FeNi/Cu/Co/Cu/FeNi/ Cu. Absolute values of the average magnetic moment per atom were determined within an error of ∼±5%. At saturation, the layer-averaged magnetic moment per Co atom was found to be 1.71±0.08μB, while the top (bottom) FeNi layer moment was 1.08±0.06μB (0.95±0.08μB). For an applied f...
