Abstract

Different types of roughness in magnetic multilayers can be distinguished with off-specular neutron scattering. We report on roughness originating from magnetic domains in Fe/Cr multilayers and on structural roughness being created at the Fe-Cr interfaces. The influence of these types of roughness on the GMR-effect is outlined.
