Magnetic properties and crystallographic structure of e-beam evaporated Co/Cr and Co/Mo multilayer thin films were investigated using VSM and XRD. Co/Cr and Co/Mo multilayer thin films are confirmed as an alternating layered structure. The structure of films with thicker Co layers than Cr and Mo layers are found to be a hcp structure with the c-axis perpendicular to the film plane. The direction of the film plane is the easy magnetization one. There is a no significant difference in shape of hysteresis loops between Co/Cr and Co/Mo multilayer films. It is found that Mo layer is more effective than Cr for preparing Co layer with c-axis normal to the film plane.
