Influence of interface anisotropy on ferromagnetic resonance in CoP/(NiP)am/CoP films

The paper presents the results of ferromagnetic resonance studies of three-layer magnetic films, where the magnetic layers are amorphous magnetically soft CoP layers, and the intermediate non-magnetic spacer is amorphous NiP layer. We found that, regardless of the nonmagnetic layer thickness, the interlayer interaction is ferromagnetic. Perpendicular anisotropy forms at the interface between the CoP and NiP layers. It is reasonable to suppose that the interlayer interaction is long-range, what is not typical for systems with metallic non-magnetic spacers.
