Abstract:
Structural, magnetic, and magneto-optical properties of Co/Pd and Co/Pd/Cu superlattices, ultra-thin Co films and MnSb alloys have been studied. The superlattices and Co films were grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) while the MnSb alloy films were made by sputtering techniques. Several x-ray diffraction techniques were used to analyze the physical structure of the superlattices and alloys. Magnetometry techniques were used to determine some of the room temperature and temperature dependent magnetic properties of the films. In situ and ex situ measurements of the magneto-optical properties of the ultra-thin Co films and alloys also were made.
