    Exchange enhancement through thermal anneal in bottom-pinned Mn[sub 76]Ir[sub 24] spin valves is investigated. Samples were fabricated by ion beam deposition (IBD), post-annealed in vacuum (10[sup -6] Torr) at 270 °C for 10 min, then cooled in a 3 kOe applied field. For a bilayer structure,...

    In 2 S 3 thin films were deposited by flash evaporation of In 2 S 3 powder. The effect of annealing in vacuum and under sulphur atmosphere on the structural and optical properties of these films was investigated.

    We present evidence that low temperature atmosphere annealing of Co/Pd magnetic multilayers reduces both the dipolar and exchange interactions, but the dipolar interaction decreases very rapidly at the lowest temperatures. We also infer cobalt oxide formation at grain boundaries. This results in...
