Abstract [en]

SmCo thin films have been grown by magnetron sputtering at room temperature with a composition of 2-35 at.% Sm. Films with 5 at.% or higher Sm are amorphous and smooth. A giant tunable uniaxial in-plane magnetic anisotropy is induced in the films which peaks in the composition range 11-22 at.% Sm. This cross-over behavior is not due to changes in the atomic moments but rather the local configuration changes. The excellent layer perfection combined with highly tunable magnetic properties make these films important for spintronics applications.
