Abstract

Local environment effects are important for understanding interfacial magnetism in artificially structured multilayers. For this reason, stable and/or metastable disordered alloys CoXM1-X (M=Pd, Ag, Mo) were fabricated in a dc cosputtering system. The magnetization as a function of composition and temperature were measured and analyzed in terms of a mean-field model. The local environment effect on the Co moment from its Ag (or Mo) neighbors and the Pd moment from its Co neighbors are studied. It is found that the polarized Pd moment increases linearly with an increasing number of nearest Co neighbors and the Co moment is destroyed by only two Mo neighbors.
