Experimental evidence for electron channeling in Fe/Au (100) superlattices.

Dekadjevi, D. T. and Ryan, P. A. and Fulthorpe, B. D. and Hickey, B. J. and Tanner, B. K. (2001) 'Experimental evidence for electron channeling in Fe/Au (100) superlattices.', Physical review letters., 86 (25). pp. 5787-5790.


We present transport and structural data from epitaxial (100) and (111) Au/Fe superlattices grown by molecular beam epitaxy. From their analysis, we conclude that an electron channeling mechanism, due to strong specular reflection of the minority spin carrier at the Au/Fe interfaces, is responsible for the high conductivity in the (100) superlattices.
