Abstract

Experimental and theoretical research on magnetic anisotropy of nanoscale multilayers is reviewed. The importance of interfaces and the occurrence of perpendicular magnetic anisotropy is emphasized. Transition metal multilayers with non-magnetic and rare earth metals are discussed, and similarities in properties are pointed out. A detailed model of perpendicular anisotropy due to single-ion interactions is outlined.
