abstract

  • The microstructures of Ni80Fe20/Cu and Ni80Fe20/Fe50Mn50 superlattices were studied using X-ray diffraction and the effects of annealing on their structures were determined. After annealing, the spatial distance of Cu decreases and that of Ni80Fe20 keeps constant for Ni80Fe20/Cu superlattices. While in the Ni80Fe20/Fe50Mn50 system, the spatial distance of Ni80Fe20 increases and that of Fe50Mn50 does not vary upon annealing. The results reveal that there is a large structural difference between Ni80Fe20/Cu and Ni80Fe20/Fe50Mn50 superlattices.
