|Title:||Coercivity of Ultrathin Films with In-plane Magnetization|
|Published:||April 15, 1997|
|Abstract:||We report numerical and analytic results for a model of coercivity and magnetization reversal in an array of square monolayer-height magnetic islands on a monolayer of magnetic material with in-plane magnetization. Reversal nucleates at step edges where local two-fold anisotropy is present in addition to the intrinsic four-fold anisotropy of the (001) flat surface of a cubic crystal. Simple analytic formulae for the coercive field are derived that agree well with numerical simulations.|
