    A FePt single layer, a FePt/Cr bilayer, and a FePt/Pt/Cr trilayer were fabricated. Transmission electron microscope images revealed that the grain size of a FePt single layer was around 50 nm, and decreased to 20 nm with a Cr underlayer. When a Pt layer was inserted between the FePt magnetic...

    The defocusing of images of ferromagnetic particles in the transmission electron microscope gives rise to magnetic contrast (Lorentz microscopy). We have developed a theory which allows from this contrast to determine quantitatively the distribution of the magnetic fields of the specimen. The...
