PMOKE hysteresis loop of the thin film of Fe-Co on Si coated with Wilkinson's Catalyst (Metal Complex)


Steps to reproduce

All films were prepared by sputtering Fe-Co (50:50) on <111> polished silicon wafer using DC magnetron sputter in a chamber with pressure of approximately 7.2 ×10-8 mbar. The silicon wafer was surface treated prior to coating to remove the silicon dioxide layer. Subsequently, the Wilkinson’s catalyst (WiC) was dissolved in Toluene to prepare concentration in range on 20 mM to 100 mM (20, 30, 40, 80 and 100 mM) and spin coated on the film. The magnetic hysteresis was obtained using MOKE in polar set-up.
