Thermomagnetic patterning (TMP) of 4 μm thick high performance NdFeB hard magnetic films deposited on Si substrates has been achieved using single pulsed laser irradiation. Uniaxially magnetised chessboard and stripe patterns with lateral feature sizes in the range 50–100 μm were produced. The depth of reversal was estimated, using both global (vibrating sample magnetometry) and localized (scanning Hall probe) measurements, to be in the range of 1.1–1.2 μm. A simple model provides semiquantitative agreement with the experimental results. A linear Halbach array was fabricated to demonstrate the potential of TMP for the realization of complex multidirectional microflux sources.

    Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) experiment is considered for the case of a constant field applied in plane of a thin film. Role of temperature is investigated by replacing the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation by the Landau-Lifshitz-Bloch approach. Two important FMR parameters are evaluated: the...

    The magnetic properties of ultra-thin magnetic films can be fine tuned to a remarkable degree by varying the number and composition of the individual layers and the substrate. Of particular interest is the ability to vary the effective magnetic anisotropy by changing the thickness of the film....

    In this study, the magnetic properties and microstructures have been investigated in Co-Ni-Fe-N soft magnetic thin films with various film thicknesses (0.01-1.0 µm). As the film thickness decreases, the coercivity, electrical resistivity, and magnetic anisotropy field of these films increases...
