Abstract [en]

Following recent theoretical predictions on perpendicular uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy in multilayers of 5 monolayers of Fe and 2 monolayers of W<sub> <i>x</i> </sub>Re<sub>100&#8211;<i>x</i> </sub> with tetragonally strained components, we have measured the magnetization and detailed atomic structure in a series of such samples with <i>x</i> = 20&#8211;80 at%. Although the achieved strain in the WRe layers is smaller than in the modelled case, we do observe a positive uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy of around 0.6 MJ/m<sup>3</sup> at 40 K, after accounting for the in-plane shape anisotropy. This causes the out-of-plane saturation field to be reduced considerably compared to a pure Fe thin film, while the saturation magnetization is maintained at a value which is enhanced by at least 30% from what would be expected from the multilayer composition alone. The coercivity is low, on the order of 6 kA/m in all samples.
