Transmission (open circles), reflection (black squares), and absorption (stars) of a layered structure consisting of a 28 nm thick gold buffer layer, 6 MLs of cobalt, and 15 MLs of gold on a glass substrate, computed from the effective medium model using dielectric constants from Refs. 16, 17, and 19. Light scattering has been neglected. Full red line: experimental reflection and transmission coefficients normalized to the values computed at 2.35 eV.
Transient changes in reflection (left side) and transmission (right side) of a layered Au/Co/Au film (black squares) and of a 30 nm thick reference Au film (open blue circles) for several probe energies. The pump photon energy is kept at 1.55 eV. The dashed line is the pump-probe cross correlation.
Logarithm of the transient change in transmission of a layered Au/Co/Au film (black squares) and a reference gold film (open circles). The thermal background has been subtracted. The solid lines are monoexponential fits to the data.
External (electron-phonon) scattering rate as a function of the cobalt layer thickness (black squares). Scattering rate in the reference gold film (open circle). The solid line is a linear fit to the data.
