Abstract

We have studied the magnetic anisotropy of MBE-grown X/Y/Co/Au thin film structures. For an interlayer wedge of Y = Au on a X = Cu buffer, we find a minimum in the perpendicular anisotropy (PA) at approx. 1 atomic layer (ML). In the reverse case (Y = Cu on a X = Au buffer), we observed an exponential decrease of PA with increasing thicknesses of the Cu interlayer.
