Keywords: thin films, magnetism, sputtering

The work relates to the exploring the means of controlling the coercivities of the ferromagnetic thin films in a Magnetic Tunnel Junction Stack. Exchange bias route is a very powerful route in achieving this task. We intend to demonstrate this in the CoFeB(FM)-IrMn(AF) bilayers grown by sputtering technique.
