Abstract

We have prepared Nb/Dy/Nb trilayers to study size effects on the magnetic and superconductor properties and to look at the influence of the magnetic layer on a superconductor layer in a nanoscale system. We find size effects on the magnetic properties of the Dy layer for thickness less than 10 nm and size effects associated with the superconductor layer for Nb layers of thickness less than 50 nm. In addition increasing the thickness the Dy layer reduces the superconductor transition temperature of the Nb layer.
