Experimental Investigation of Ultrafast Thermalization Dynamics on Nickel Thin Films
In order to break the limitation of the speed of magnetic installation due to magnetic layer transfer characteristics, the ultrafast thermalization dynamic of Ni films and its composite films were studied by femtosecond laser pump-probe technique. The paper focuses on the research of the effect of cooling layer and annealing on the transient reflectivity curves. And the transient reflectivity signals of Ni films prepared under different parameters were measured. The results show that the cooling layer with the larger electron heat capacity constant and the stronger electron-phonon coupling constant can enhance the scattering efficiency of transient heat conduction. Compared to the unannealed sample, the composite film sample after annealing has faster recovery process.
