Abstract: The influence of a Co seed layer on the structural and magnetic properties of Co/Au(1 1 1) multilayers grown onto ␣-Al 2 O 3 (0 0 0 1) single crystal substrates by molecular beam epitaxy has been studied by reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and vibrating a sample magnetometer (VSM). The initial deposition of the Co seed layer onto Al 2 O 3 (0 0 0 1) prior to the deposition of an Au buffer layer yielded high-quality fcc-Au(1 1 1) oriented epitaxial films and a well-k…
