Magnetization distribution in the FM film that is in contact with a rigid layered AFM in the presence of an atomic step at the interface: in absence of magnetic anisotropy (a), and when anisotropy is taken into consideration (b).
Magnetization distribution in FM subsystem near atomic step at the interface: vortex configuration (V), σ = 1 (a), and antivortex configuration (AV), σ = –1 (b).
Domain structure of the FM film near a step interface: (a) when the vortex system at the interface is periodic and (b) when vortices and antivortices alternate regularly at the interface.
Associated with the surface dipole of an isolated step in the domain of the FM film: (a) domain in an external magnetic field with a trailing domain boundary (DB), connecting the vortex and antivortex at the interface, and (b) domain in the absence of external field in the case when h ≫ L.
