Abstract

A study to investigate the dependence of the perpendicular anisotropy in Co/Au multilayers on the number of repetitions N was presented. An overall improvement of the multilayer quality was observed on increasing the value of N which corresponds to a change in the micromagnetic structure and to an enhancement of the perpendicular anisotropy. These effects were attributed to a reduction of the magnetostatic energy associated with the formation of perpendicular magnetic domains in multilayer with increasing number of repetitions.
