Abstract

We investigate the magnetic properties of CoNi and CoPt films prepared by an alternate monoatomic layer deposition and discuss the possible existence of a metastable superlattice structure. We find that, as has been reported for the CoPt and CoPd films, the CoNi film also exhibits a perpendicular magnetic anisotropy when the monoatomic Co and Ni layers are stacked alternately, suggesting the possible formation of superlattice structure. Since the CoNi film contains neither noble nor rare-earth metals, it should be an attractive material system for applications.
