Ultrathin films of β-tungsten provide very promising substrates for applications in spintronics, and the possibility of incorporating them into multilayers extends such expectations. Our calculations indicate that it is viable to deposit a single layer of Mn on two non-equivalent (0 0 1) surfaces of β-tungsten that have easy axes along orthogonal directions [0 1 0] and [1 0 0], respectively. The ferromagnetic structure of this Mn monolayer adsorbed to either of those surfaces displays a giant in-plane magneto-crystalline anisotropy that exceeds 12 meV per Mn atom. Read More
