Tuning magnetic properties by hydrogen implantation in amorphous Fe100-xZrx thin films
2013 (English)In: Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, ISSN 0304-8853, Vol. 346, 138-141 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Thin films of amorphous Fe100-xZrx (x=7.6-12.9 at%) were synthesized by dc-magnetron sputtering. Samples with compositions of x=11.6 and 12.0 at% were hydrogenated by implantation. The Curie temperature increases with hydrogen content from 232 K for as-grown Fe88Zr12 to 370 K for a sample hydrogenated to 31 at%. The coercivity decreases dramatically upon hydrogenation, yielding films with tunable transition temperatures and soft magnetic properties.
