Abstract: We have investigated the reorientation of the easy axis of magnetization in (001) Fe/Ag superlattices using vibrating sample magnetometry, Mossbauer spectroscopy and nuclear resonance scattering of synchrotron radiation. Clear evidence is found that the Fe-layer magnetization can be oriented considerably out of the plane of the sample at room temperature, even for Fe-layer thicker than 6 ML at which the spin-reorientation transition usually occurs in Fe/Ag. The spin canting is attributed to frustration and a strong contribution of a step-induced anisotropy.
