|Abstract:||In this work, exchange bias and coercivity enhancement in ferromagnet (FM)-antiferromagnet (AFM) bilayer have been investigated. CoO film (50 nm) was deposited by sputtering with a relatively high oxygen partial pressure. The deposited films were subsequently annealed at varied temperature up to 973 K in the air atmosphere. The CoO film shows a disordered structure in the as-deposited state and an increase of crystallinity after annealing characterized by XRD and Raman spectra. A 40-nm Co film was deposited on the as-deposited CoO and annealed films. The Co-CoO bilayer shows a large exchange bias up to 1600 Oe and relatively high coercivity up to 3200 Oe (HC-) at 5 K, which is much larger than that of crystalline Co-CoO bilayer films without any treatment. The spin glass behavior combined with increasing crystallinity, surface roughness of CoO after annealing may be attributed to the large exchange bias and high coercivity. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
