Dynamics of Magnetization Reversal in Thin Polycrystalline Co Films


Article Preview

The thin polycrystalline Co films with different annealed time were prepared by magnetron sputtering method. XRD and hysteresis loops of the samples were measured. A mean field equation with Heisenberg model for calculating dynamic scaling was derived. The experimental and simulated results indicate that, the scaling law, A=A0+H0 a ω b, describes well dynamic magnetization along easy and hard axes for the anisotropy magnetic films; the anisotropy scaling exponents exist clearly in the anisotropy films; the simulated results are consistent with the experimental those.
