Abstract

Here we report on a feasibility study aiming to explore the potential of Polarized Neutron Reflectometry (PNR) for detecting the inverse proximity effect in a single superconducting/ferromagnetic bilayer. Experiments, conducted on the V (40 nm)/Fe (1 nm) S/F bilayer, have shown that experimental spin asymmetry measured at T = 0.5T C is shifted towards higher Q values compared to the curve measured at T = 1.5T C. Such a shift can be described by the appearance in superconducting vanadium of magnetic sublayer with a thickness of 7 nm and a magnetization of +0.8 kG.
