(a) Pole figures obtained for and 30.30 displaying -axis texture normal to the film surface and in-plane expitaxy. (b) Schematic for the rotation experiments (thick dashed axis). between film normal and applied field.
Effective magnetocrystalline anisotropy of the aggregate of grains as a function of the -axis dispersion for a Gaussian-like distribution of grain orientations defined in Eq. (2).
Easy and hard axis and hysteresis loops (a) and , , and torque for magnetization with fields applied at 45° to the easy axis (b). In (c), an irregular striped domain structure is observed with magnetization normal to the film. The hysteresis loops were not corrected for demagnetizing field effects.
2D magnetization trajectories for (a) rotational hysteresis experiments obtained for varying in fixed applied fields along the positive direction and (b) standard hysteresis experiments for fixed and varying field magnitude and sign along the axis. The inset in (b) illustrates the angle of inclination of the low-field magnetization trajectory, , as a function of the easy axis orientation, . Both are measured with respect to the applied field direction.
