Original Paper


The larger \((\mu _{\mathrm {s}} - 1)f_{\mathrm {r}}^{2}\) in the [Fe 45Co 45 B 10/ZnO] n multilayers than that in single-layer films was found. Large Acher’s limit resulted from the interface magnetic anisotropy of Fe 45Co 45 B 10/ZnO, and the effect of interface magnetic anisotropy increases with increasing the number (n) of magnetic layers. With increasing n, μ s decreases, H k increases, and f r of the multilayer increases from 2.7 to 6 GHz, which greatly broadens the working frequency range. The damping coefficient also increases with increasing n, so the magnetic loss increases with n, and it is introduced by the dispersion of the spins at the interface.
