Abstract: The present paper aims to show that a perturbed angular correlation (PAC) investigation gives access to unique information on the (interface) magnetism in MBE-grown very thin magnetic multilayers. For the Fe/Cr(1 0 0) multilayer system we observe, below a critical Cr-thickness of 5.0 nm, a collapse of the spin-density-wave (SDW) ordening in chromium. While the magnetization in the Fe-layer is in-plane, the Cr-magnetisation in thicker layers is out-of-plane. In the Fe/Co (1-10) system, the observation of transferred magnetic hyperfine field satellites and their temperature dependence leads to the determination of an oscillating magnetic moment profile at the Fe/Co interface as well as a structure model for the superlattice.
