Abstract

59Co nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements have been undertaken to determine the local atomic environment of Co in Co/V multilayers, previously studied by magnetometry. These NMR measurements provide confirmation, on a local atomic scale, of the results deduced from the earlier magnetization study. Co/V multilayers show considerable interfacial mixing with a magnetically dead, vanadium rich layer penetrating approximately 2 Angstrom into an adjoining Co layer. The presence of this dead layer has the effect of modifying the hyperfine field experienced by the Co nuclei at a distance of several atomic planes from the interface.
