A series of Fe-Co alloys were produced at the atomic scale, onto 15 buffer layers, using pulsed-current deposition. The relationship between saturation magnetization, Ms and lattice constant, has been investigated. The effects of increasing stacking number (bilayer number) on the values of Ms and have been examined. The alloys showed a maximum room temperature Ms of 240 at 25 % . A study to the room temperature magnetic and microstructure analysis revealed that the increase in saturation magnetization strongly correlates with the lattice constant of the Fe-Co alloy.
