Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Magnetic coupling in FeSm/FeTaN multilayer thin films was studied using magnetization and ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) techniques. Reversal of the soft and hard magnetic layers depended strongly on the thickness of each individual layer. The observed behavior was modeled with a free energy that included an easy axis anisotropy and exchange interaction between both magnetic layers.
