We have studied the Fe/V bcc (100) multilayers and the effect of alloying the V spacer layers with various amounts of magnetic impurities (Fe, Co, Ni, and Cr). The study was performed by means of total energy electronic structure calculations. We compare the effect of the different types of impurities and discuss the interlayer exchange coupling in terms of Fermi surface topology and bulk magnetic order. The effect of interface roughness and interface intermixing on the phase diagrams was also studied.
