Abstract : This project originally focused on the synthesis and characterization of MBE-grown FeCo alloy magnetic film structures. This emphasis was carried through successfully, however, additional related project components dealing with sputtered permalloy and cobalt films were also conducted. The decision to include these new materials kept within the focus of establishing a successful new research initiative investigating novel magnetic film phenomena with an accent towards possible implementation in magnetic film device applications (including giant magnetoresistance).
