Abstract

The spin reorientation transition from in-plane to canted phase was found in the CoxNi1-x/Cu(1 0 0) alloy films with 0≤x≤8%. In the critical thickness range the alloy films reveal complicated evolution of magnetization orientation at variation of temperature. These findings may be attributed to the sensitive temperature effect of the higher order term in magnetic anisotropy.
