We report detailed measurements of the magnetization of Cu/Ni composition modulated foils as a function of temperature, magnetic field, composition wavelength, and composition amplitude. We find a Curie temperature that initially increases rapidly with wavelength but quickly saturates. We also find that the Curie temperature is independent of composition amplitude which we ascribe to the existence of disk-like Ni clusters.
