Abstract
The local surface oxidation of the permalloy Surface layer in Py/Cu GMR multilayers on a micron lateral scale has been analyzed by means of a microspot-X-ray absorption spectromicroscope utilizing synchrotron radiation from the Advanced Light Source bending magnet beamline 6.3.2. Additionally, the GMR multilayer samples prepared by do magnetron sputtering have been analyzed by cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy, hard X-ray reflection and magnetoresistance measurements. The formation of a passivating iron-oxide layer on the sample surface was identified by X-ray absorption near edge structure spectroscopy (XANES) near the Fe-2p edge while no indication for nickel-oxide formation could be found. Small micron-size pits of reduced iron-oxide concentration could be identified by XANES microscopy while the corresponding nickel distribution appeared to be homogeneous. The results are explained in terms of a local breakdown of the passivating oxide layer.
