Abstract

Using nuclear resonant scattering of synchrotron radiation and density functional theory calculations we haveresolved the magnetic properties of the different Fe phases present at the Fe/NiO(001) interface, an epitaxialferromagnetic/antiferromagnetic system. We have detected the presence of an interfacial antiferromagneticFeO-like phase with a significantly increased magnetic moment compared to the case of a sharp interface.Already a few atomic layers above the interface, the Fe atoms have a bulk-like metallic character and the reversalof their magnetization is strongly influenced by the antiferromagnetic layer.
