A series of Fe/Pd superlattices of varying numbers of atoms per layer were fabricated. Structural properties were characterized by x-ray diffraction. Magnetic properties were studied by Mössbauer spectroscopy and transport properties by electrical-conductivity measurements. All properties studied could be explained by structural characteristics, such as grain size and interdiffusion, without the need of invoking superlattice effects.
