Abstract

The effect of seedlayers such as C, Si and Pd/Si on the [Co/Pd] multilayerd perpendicular magnetization film was investigated. The study was carried out by using x-ray absorption spectrum (XAS) and magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectra at the Co L2,3-edges. It was found that the expectation values of the orbital angular momentum (Lz) and the spin angular momentum (Sz) of Co atom in the [Co/Pd] multilayered film were estimated using the sum rule. It was also observed that the seedlayer changes macroscopic magnetic properties of the [Co/Pd] multilayered film without affecting the electronic and spin state of the upper layers of Co.
