Exchange bias and anisotropy in the Fe/KCoF3 structure



Leszek Malkinski, Nicholas Cramer, Andrew Hutchinson, Robert E. Camley, Zbigniew J. Celinski, Danuta Skrzypek, Ronald B. Goldfarb


A new type of ferromagnet/antiferromagnet structure (fe/KCoF3) was deposited by molecular beam epitaxy. Unidirectional and uniaxial anisotropies of 5.1 and 3.4 kA/m were measured at 23 K using ferromagnetic resonance. Magnetization measurements at 5 K showed a hysteresis loop shift of 6kA/M due to exchange bias. Significant enhancement of four-fold anisotropy was found at low temperatures in the samples with polycrystalline KCoFd3 structure.
