The perpendicular magnetic anisotropy in Fe/Cu thin film over- and interlayers is investigated in terms of the fully relativistic spin-polarized band theory. The formation of the ground state is addressed and a layer-resolved analysis of the magnetic anisotropy energies for the Fe/Cu(100) and the Cu/Fe/Cu(100) system is presented both for ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic cases.
