Abstract

The structural and magnetic properties of Co 2MnSi films on different oriented n-Ge substrates were compared. The orientation of the substrates changed the growth of the film. Therefore, a significant change of magnetization of Co 2MnSi films was noticed depending on the orientation of the Ge substrates.
