The dependence of the interlayer coupling on both the soft and hard layer thickness in FeTaN/FeTaN multilayers, deposited by DC magnetron sputtering was investigated. The layering was designed in that the basic unit in Soft-Hard-Soft (S-H-S) for one layer and N×(S-H-S) for N layers. The thickness of the elemental layers in each sample showed the hysteresis loops measured by MOKE along the easy in-plane direction for all the multilayers.
