    In an earlier paper we have reported about prelimary results of evaporated CoNi/Pt multilayers [1] The main result at that time was a substantially lower Curie temperature for a Co60Ni40/Pt multilayer in comparison with the known Co/Pt having the same magnetic parameters. A study of the bulk magnetic phase diagrams shows a lowered Tc for adding Ni into Co. The problem by tailoring the composition for the Tc is that one also have to consider the Kerr rotation because this value scales with the magnetic moment of the multilayer.
