Effects of hydrogen absorption on magnetism in Ni80Fe20/Y/Pd trilayers
The effects of hydrogen absorption on the effective magnetization (4πMeff), gyromagnetic ratio (γ), Gilbert damping constant (αG), and the inhomogeneous linewidth broadening in Py(x)/Y(16 nm)/Pd(15 nm) trilayer films (x = 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40 nm) were investigated with ferromagnetic resonance (FMR), transmission electron microscopy, and vibrating sample magnetometry. In the presence of a hydrogen atmosphere, the samples show a reduction of their FMR linewidth which is found to stem purely from a reduction of the inhomogeneous linewidth broadening. This is attributed to a rearrangement of atoms at the Py/Y interface in the presence of hydrogen, making the Py/Y interface more homogeneous. In addition, a reduction of 4πMeff was seen for all samples in the hydrogen atmosphere which is typical for an increase of the interfacial perpendicular magnetic anisotropy at the Py/Y interface.
