A magnetometric technique for detecting the magnetic anisotropy field of ferromagnetic films is described. The technique is based on the extraordinary Hall voltage measurement with rotating the film under an external magnetic field. By analyzing the angle-dependent Hall voltage based on the Stoner–Wohlfarth theory, the magnetic anisotropy field is uniquely determined. The present technique is pertinent especially for ultrathin films with strong intrinsic signal, in contrast to the conventional magnetometric techniques of which the signal is in proportion to the sample volume and geometry.

    We have proven that the growth of Co68Fe24Zr8 layers under external field yields a uniaxial anisotropy, defined by the direction of the field. No magnetic coupling is present between Co68Fe24Zr8 layers when separated by a 3 nm of Al70Zr30. The anisotropy axis can therefore be manipulated at will...

    In this study, ferromagnetic MnAl films were prepared by alternating Al/Mn quasi-monolayer deposition using a novel biased target ion beam deposition (BTIBD) technique. XRD results showed that the magnetic τ phase was well formed in MnAl thin films (∼10 nm), which grew epitaxially on...

    A magneto-optically active thin film of RbjCok[Fe(CN)6]l·nH2O has been prepared using a sequential assembly method. Upon irradiation with light and at 5 K, the net magnetization of the film increased when the surface of the film was oriented parallel to the external magnetic field of 0.1 T....

    This paper presents a comparison between exchange bias measurements for Co clusters on CoO, NiO, and SiO2 thin films.

    We investigate the effect of Co+ irradiation on the magnetization dynamics of CoCrPt:SiO2 granular media. Increasing irradiation levels reduce the saturation magnetization and effective anisotropy, which decrease the intrinsic magnetization precession frequency. Furthermore, increasing...
