UNSPECIFIED (2001) Sputter deposition of compositional gradient magnetostrictive FeCo based thin films. JOURNAL OF MAGNETISM AND MAGNETIC MATERIALS, 237 (2). pp. 175-180. ISSN 0304-8853Full text not available from this repository.
A thin film of FexCo(1-x) has been produced with a linear compositional gradient ranging from x=0.67 to x=0.40 via an RF sputtering technique. The film was deposited onto a glass slide from a target consisting of two semi-circles of pure Fe and Co. We show that such a compositional gradient combined with local magnetic probes allows easy and quick characterisation of the magnetic properties as a function of composition. The composition dependence of the coercivity, anisotropy and magnetostriction of FexCo(1-x) have been established using this method. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
