Abstract

Based on first principles calculations, we investigate the magnetic anisotropy and spin reorientation transition (SRT) for Fen/Au(001) (n=2,3) films. The SRT occurs at three atomic layer of Fe in agreement with experiments due to competing on-site and two-site anisotropy. We also study the temperature dependence of the magnetic anisotropy energy (MAE) by means of metadynamics Monte Carlo simulations.
