How to calculate saturation magnetisation in GMR effect?

  1. Jun 10, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello everyone. This is my first post.
    I'm working now on my laboratory report from GMR effect. I have to calculate the antiferromagnetic coupling for my multilayers. I have only resistance versus magnetic field graphs.

    2. Relevant equations
    I want to use the equation:
    ##J_{AF}=-\frac{\mu_0 M_S t}{4}H_S##
    It's easy to find ##H_S##, ##\mu_0## and t is given, and I need ##M_S##.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have found equation $$H_S=\frac{K}{M_S},$$ but there is next unknown K, which is the anisotropy constant, and I'm not sure how it is for permalloy which the multilayers were made.

    Thank you for your help.
