Theoretical studies of model thin EuTe films with surface elastic stresses

Anna Radomska and Tadeusz Balcerzak
From the journal Open Physics

Abstract

A simple model for the description of thin EuTe films is proposed. The magnetoelastic interactions at the surface are taken into account. The influence of the elastic stresses on magnetic properties of the film is studied, especially with respect to the possibility of antiferromagnetic/ferromagnetic phase transitions.
