Abstract

This paper reports the influence of the deposition temperature and the wavelength of the periodicity on the effective interdiffusivity, microstructure, and magnetic properties of annealed [Fe/Pt](n) multilayer films (MLs). It was found that both the deposition temperature and periodicity of [Fe/Pt](n) MLs have a significant influence on the effective Fe-Pt interdiffusivity, microstructure, and magnetic properties of the annealed films. It was also observed that the magnitude of the effective interdiffusion coefficient, the L1(0) grain size, and the long-range order parameter were positively correlated. This result suggests that nonequilibrium reaction kinetics are desirable for the reduced temperature formation of the L1(0) FePt phase. (C) 2008 American Institute of Physics.
