Title Magnetic properties of Fe/AlOx /GaAs(001) structures
Contributors
Abstract We report results on the effect of the AlOx barrier layer on the magnetic moment of Fe using polarized neutron reflection. The sample has nominal composition 25 nm Au/5 nm Fe/1.3 nm AlOx /GaAss001d. The metal deposition was done in ultrahigh vacuum and the Al oxidation was performed in two steps. From the fit to the neutron data we obtain for the magnetic moment of Fe the value s2.164±0.026dmB, very close to the bulk value s2.185mB at room temperatured. We conclude that there is no dead layer at the AlOx interface.
