Ultrathin Films and Some Cross Effect (1) Some properties in ultra thin films (a) surface and interface anisotropy (b) fcc Fe and fcc Co (c) surface magnetism (d) M(T) in ultra thin film (2) Some cross effect (a) magneto-optical effect (b) dilute magnetic semiconductor (DMS)
Interesting aspects: (1) For studying new phases of materials such as, fcc cobalt and fcc iron grown on Cu (001) (2) Two dimensional features which not encountered in bulk specimens. (3) Whether any dead layer appears ?
Spin polarization, p (in%), of photoelectrons from Fe(100) on Ag(100), versus magnetic field along the surface normal (Stam- panoni et al.,PRL 59(1987)2483). Perpendicular anisotropy
Temperature dependence of the saturation polarization of a 3.5 ML thick epitaxial bcc Fe film on Ag(001) and a 3 ML fcc Fe on Cu(001). Insert: thickness dependence of the Cuire temperature of the bcc Fe films. P=(N - N )/ ( N + N )
From the above two figures, the following facts are evident: (1) Films of 1ML or thicker of bcc Fe/Ag(001) are ferromagnetic (2) At T=30K, the remanence magnetization of 3.5 ML film is dirrected along the surface normal. The remanence equals practically the full saturation magnetization showing the film to be essentially single domain (3) The Curie temperature of films thicker than 5 ML equals the bulk bcc Fe
Magnetisation loop of 2.2 nm thick Ni(111) on Cu(111), coated by Cu(111), measured by TOM. The films show a perpendicular aniso- tropy (PA) between 1.0 – 2.5 nm (Gradmann, Ann. Phys.17(1966)91).

Surface Magnetic Anisotropy ? The reduced symmetry at the surface (Neel 1954); The ratio of L z 2 / (L x 2 + L y 2 ) is increased near the surface Interface anisotropy (LS coupling)  J.G.Gay and Roy Richter, PRL 56(1986)2728,  G.H.O. Daalderop et al., PRB 41(1990)11919,  D.S.Wang et al., PRL 70(1993)869.
Fcc Co on Cu(001) Normalized polarization P/P o as a function of the externally applied field perpendicular to the film plane. Data are given for five film thickness at T=300 K.
Temperature dependence of the spin polarization for a 1 ML film measured in saturation. Applied field 15 KOe.
Polarization P(H) of a 5 ML fcc Fe film on Cu(001), (a) for sample temperature T=215, 267, and 375 K, (b) at T=30 K, H is perpen- dicular to the film plan. Fcc Fe on (001)Cu
Polarization P(H) measured at T=30 K, (a) for 3 ML fcc Fe on Cu (001), (b) for 1 ML. H is perpendicular to the film plane.
Temperature dependence of the reduced polarization P/P o for 1, 3, and 5 ML films of fcc Fe on Cu(001). P o is the saturation polarization at low temperature. The Curie temperature are 230K for 1ML film, 390 K for 3 and 5 ML films.
Conclution: (1) 1ML of Co on Cu(001) is ferromagnetic; The magnetization being in plane; T c (for 1 ML) > room temperature. (2) Fcc Fe (1 ML)stabilized at the lattice constant of Cu (001) has been found to have a ferromagnetic ground state; Anisotropy and Curie temperature is dependent on the temperature and film thick- ness  D.
