Structural, Chemical and Magnetic Properties of Nickel Vertical Posts Obtained by Glancing Angle Deposition Technique
In this work, Glancing Angle Deposition technique was used for obtaining nanostructured nickel thin film with vertical posts on glass substrate which was positioned 75 degrees with respect to the substrate normal and rotated with a suitable constant speed. The obtained nickel thin film was characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy, Atomic Force Microscopy and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy. It was found that the deposited thin film consists of 94.0 at.% of nickel. Magnetic properties of the deposited thin film were determined by Magneto-Optical Kerr Effect Microscopy. According to the obtained coercivity values, it can be concluded that the nickel thin film shows uniaxial magnetic anisotropy.
