  • Local structure and magnetic properties of B2- and B20-like ultrathin Mn films grown on Si(001) 

    Kahwaji, S.; Gordon, R. A.; Crozier, E. D.; Monchesky, T. L. (American Physical Society, 2012-01/01)
    The structural and magnetic properties of ultrathin Mn layers deposited onto Si(001) by molecular beam epitaxy at low temperature are reported. X-ray absorption fine structure studies reveal that the structure of the ...
  • Spin-dependent transport in Fe and Fe/Au multilayers 

    Monchesky, T. L.; Enders, A.; Urban, R.; Myrtle, K.; Heinrich, B.; Zhang, X. -G; Butler, W. H.; Kirschner, J. (APS through AIP, 2005-06/01)
    In situ resistance measurements of epitaxial Fe layers and Au/Fe bilayers were used to quantify the scattering in giant magnetoresistance (GMR) spin valve structures. The semiclassical Boltzmann transport equation, ...
  • Structure and magnetic properties of MnSi epitaxial thin films 

    Karhu, E.; Kahwaji, S.; Monchesky, T. L.; Parsons, C.; Robertson, M. D.; Maunders, C. (American Physical Society, 2010-11/01)
    We report on the correlation between the magnetic and structural properties of epitaxial MnSi (111) thin films grown by solid-phase epitaxy on Si (111) substrates. The Si (111) substrate, with a surface unit cell that is ...
