Magnetic Structure of Fe/V Superlattices with Variable Thickness of Iron Layers
The model of magnetic structure of Fe/V superlattices is discussed. An individual iron layer of 2 or 3 ML in thickness is assumed to be a XY system. An interlayer interaction through vanadium spacers leads to the appearing of effective field for each iron layer. The infinite and finite superlattices are investigated. Calculations of magnetic structure of Fe2/V12/Fe3/V12 superlattice show that divergence in estimations of the critical temperature obtained by neutron scattering and MOKE is due to inhomogeneity of magnetic moment distribution in the finite superlattice.
