Abstract

The ferromagnetic interlayer coupling in sputter-deposited permalloy/copper/permalloy exchange-biased spin valve multilayers has been measured as a function of the copper thickness. The variation with thickness may, for tcu>1.7 nm, be analyzed in terms of the Neel model for magnetostatic coupling due to correlated interface roughness, using parameters which are consistent with the observed microstructure
