Abstract

Low-energy electron diffraction, Auger electron spectroscopy, and conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy have been applied to study antiferromagnetically exchange-coupled epitaxial Fe/Si/Fe(100). It is shown that a bcc-like (100) structure is maintained throughout the layers after a recrystallization of the spacer layer by Fe/Si interdiffusion. Direct experimental evidence is presented that c-Fe1-xSi (0
