Abstract [en]

Al2O3/Ni81Fe19 multilayer films were produced by sequential magnetron sputter deposition on thermally oxidized Si(001) substrates. By varying the thickness of the Ni81Fe19 layer from 8 to 30 Aa, while keeping the other parameters unchanged, one can control the film structure from nanoclusters to continuous multilayers. The nanoclustered sample is superparamagnetic while the continuous samples show ferromagnetic behavior. The magnetic moments per atom of the Ni81Fe19 layers decrease with decreasing amt. of metallic deposits, indicating the presence of nonmagnetic layers at the interfaces. The thicknesses of these layers are ∌1 Aa for the flat continuous film and 3.8 Aa for the nanoclustered film. The existence of nonmagnetic layers may be interpreted in terms of the formation of antiferromagnetic oxides at the interfaces. [on SciFinder(R)]
