Abstract

The effects of ion irradiation were studied on epitaxial Cu/Ni/Cu(001) structures with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. The spin reorientation transitions occurred from perpendicular to in-plane magnetization after ion irradiation. It was found that the spin reorientation transition was caused by the relaxation of strain in Ni layer, which was initiated by ion irradiation.
