Using circularly polarized soft x rays to probe antiferromagnetically correlated Co/Cu multilayers
The antiferromagnetic correlation between weakly coupled Co layers in Co/ Cu multilayers was investigated. The soft x-ray resonant magnetic scattering (SXRMS) technique was used for the study. For standard specular θ-2θ scans, half order peaks were observed with the energy of the incident x rays turned to the Co absorption edge. Rocking scans were derived at integer-order, half-integer-order and off-order, between 3/2 and second-order diffuse spectrum.
