The coupling between hard FePt/CoFe and soft CoFe/NiFe layers through a Cu spacer has been studied in L10 (111) FePt(20)/CoFe(1.5)/Cu(3.5 or 4.5)/CoFe(2)/NiFe(3) (in nm) pseudo spin valves. The soft layer hysteresis loops exhibit clear shifts in the ¯eld axis (exchange bias-like) and a marked coercivity enhancement. The thickness of the Cu layer or the interface roughness in°uence the exchange bias properties of the systems. This interlayer coupling arises from the competition between dipolar and RKKY interactions between the layers.
