Structure and Magnetic Properties of FeNi/Ti Multilayered Films Grown by Magnetron Sputtering
Structure and magnetic properties of FeNi/Ti multilayers prepared by magnetron sputtering were studied. The dependences of the spontaneous magnetization and hysteresis features of the films on the thickness of the magnetic layers were established. It was shown that these properties were to a large extent determined by interlayer interfaces, in which the effective magnetization decreases. The possible reason for the interface peculiarities was the interlayer mixing. The presence of (FeNi)Ti phase which was formed by the interdiffusion of FeNi and Ti layers was confirmed by X-ray diffraction measurements.
