We suggest here a nanolaminate, 5[Fe]/2[W(x)Re(1-x)] (x = 0.6-0.8), with enhanced magnetic hardness in combination with a large saturation moment. The calculated magnetic anisotropy of this material reaches values of 5.3-7.0 MJ/m(3), depending on alloying conditions. We also propose a recipe in how to identify other novel magnetic materials, such as nanolaminates and multilayers, with large magnetic anisotropy in combination with a high saturation moment.
