AbstractWe report first-principles investigations of magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy (MCAE) oscillations as a function of capping layer thickness in Heusler alloy Co2FeAl/Ta heterostructures. A substantial oscillation is observed in the FeAl-interface structure. According to k-space and band-decomposed charge-density analyses, this oscillation is mainly attributed to the Fermi-energy-vicinal quantum well states (QWSs) which are confined between the Co2FeAl/Ta interface and Ta/vacuum surface. The smaller oscillation magnitude in the Co-interface structure can be explained by the smooth potential transition at the interface. These findings clarify that MCAE in Co2FeAl/Ta is not a local property of the interface and that the quantum well effect plays a dominant role in MCAE oscillations of the heterostructures. This work presents the possibility of tuning MCAE by QWSs in capping layers and paves the way for artificially controlling magnetic anisotropy energy in magnetic tunnel junctions.
