Nanostructured multilayers of Dy/M (M=Ta, Cu, Y, and Co) have been investigated. Correlations between the microstructure and the magnetic properties, in particular the effects of interfacial structure, are discussed. The temperature and layer-thickness dependences of anisotropy of these Dy/M multilayers can be interpreted reasonably in light of the model previously developed for the perpendicular anisotropy in amorphous multilayers.
