Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


FeSm/FeTaN hard/soft multilayers with well-defined in-plane uniaxial anisotropy have been grown. Exchange spring behavior is observed and its occurrence and character is correlated with component layer thicknesses and volume fractions. The dc demagnetization remanence technique is used to determine the irreversible changes in the magnetization of the exchange spring structure.
