Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

X-ray reflectivity patterns and the respective fitting using the WINGIXA program from Phillips for the T (a) and T (b) samples.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

X-ray diffraction patterns for the T (a) and T (b) samples as a function of the IrMn thickness (t), with values indicated in the figure. Full black circles are due to the (111) fcc-IrMn structure. Si substrate peak is also displayed by full grey circle. In Figure (b), it is shown the asymmetric peak attributed to Co and NiFe phase (2θ ∼ 44°), which was fitted with two Gaussian lines, as shown for t = 8 nm.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

300 K hysteresis loops for the T (a) and T (b) samples cooled down from 400 K to 300 K under magnetic fields applied of 10 Oe in 0°, 45°, 70°, and 90° with respect to the [110] direction of the Si substrate.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

300 K hysteresis magnetic loops of the samples T (a), T (b), T (c), and T (d) recorded for the as-prepared films (black disk) and in 10 Oe field-cooling process from 400 K to 300 K (red square). The identifications of the NiFe and Co loops are in (b) by vertical arrows. The inset at the first quadrants shows the interlayer coupling at H = 0 and the insets at the second and third quadrants in (b) represent the interlayer coupling at the saturated condition.

FIG. 5.

Dependence of the H ((a), (c)) and H ((b), (d)) of the NiFe and Co layers as a function of the t for the T ((a), (b)) and T ((c), (d)) samples. The solid and dashed lines are guide for the eyes.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

In-plane (red) and out-of-plane (black) 300 K FMR spectra of the T (a) and T (c) samples presenting two independent modes for the NiFe and Co layers. The angular phase Δθ between the NiFe and Co magnetization directions as a function of the IrMn thickness (t) for the T (b) and T (d) samples.
