Abstract [en]

A magnetization reorientation transition has been obsd. in Fe81Ni19/Co(001) superlattices by means of magneto-optical Kerr effect and magnetic force microscopy measurements. The transition is driven by the variation of the interface d. First-principles calcns. are combined with a linear stability anal. of the Landau-Lifshitz equation to clarify the mechanism that drives the transition. We are able to identify it as being driven by competing interface in-plane and uniaxial bulk out-of-plane anisotropies. The origin of the bulk anisotropy is attributed to tetragonal distortions exptl. obsd. in these superlattices.
