Abstract

Abstract We present calculations of the non-collinear magnetic structure in Fe/Cr superlattices having imperfect interfaces modeled by considering atomic steps in the Cr layers and Fe/Cr interfacial ordered compounds. The interlayer couplings are obtained directly from self-consistent tight binding band structure calculations. We show that the bilinear–biquadratic expression for the coupling energy fits nicely the calculated interlayer couplings curves.
