Chemical order and crystallographic texture of FePd films

What is it about?

In this paper we investigate the influence of the substrate type on chemical order and crystallographic texture of the Cu-doped L10-ordered FePd thin alloy films. Both of these quantities were determined by X-ray Diffraction measurements using synchrotron radiation.

Why is it important?

Our findings show that chemical order and crystallographic texture of the FePd:Cu thin alloy films is dependent on used substrate. Since the L10-ordered FePd alloy is being consider a promising material for applications in hard disks with perpendicular magnetic recording it is essential to determine the best and cheapest way to produce well-ordered and textured material.
