Paper Abstract

The MO properties of Co/Pt multilayers (MLs) depend fundamentally on the periodic structure of the multilayers. In this paper, the influences of Co layer thickness, the atom proportion of Co and Pt, and sputtering temperature on the MO properties of Co/Pt multilayers are studied. The results prove that the MO properties of Co/Pt multilayers strongly depend on the Co layer thickness and the atom proportion of Co and Pt. When tCo < 0.4 nm, and tCO/tPt equals 1/2, the multilayers have better comprehensive MO properties; when the sputtering substrate temperature is raised up to a proper degree, the crystallinity of the multilayers is improved and better periodic structure is obtained, which finally improves the MO properties of Co/Pt multilayers. We also studied factors which affect the TC of Co/Pt MLs, and found that doping the Co layer with rare earth elements is an effective way to decrease the TC of Co/Pt MLs, it might promote Co/Pt MLs into the stage of practical uses, but more detailed research work should be done further.
