Nb/Pd(Mn) multilayers have been fabricated by sputtering and Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). The samples were characterized by X-Ray analyses which showed in the case of sputtered samples oxygen contamination at the Nb interfaces. The MBE films exhibited higher residual resistivity ratios (RRR) and superconducting critical temperatures versus the Pd thicknesses in agreement with the de Gennes-Werthamer theory. Critical magnetic field measurements were also performed on these samples. Nb/PdMn multilayers were analyzed to study the superconductivity and the magnetism interplay.
