"Study of amorphous magnetic thin films"
Amorphous rare-earth alloys exhibit compensation phenomena involving a low saturation magnetization and high anisotropy field near the compensation temperature. However, the anisotropy of these amorphous solids is not well understood. At the same time, some of these materials also exhibit low Gilbert damping parameter that is preferable in spin-torque-transferred devices. I will discuss the properties of the various magnetic films being investigated.
