Fe/M (M = Ag, Sn) multilayer films have been prepared by a vacuum evaporation method. RBS is performed to examine the depth profile of the multilayer films. For M = Ag, a layer structure with a well defined interface is formed by the present evaporation method. Mössbauer spectroscopy as well as XRD shows that the Fe in the multilayer is in an α-Fe state. For M = Sn, RBS showed that a considerable mixing had taken place between Fe and Sn during the multilayer procedure.
