The influence of annealing temperature and film thickness on structural and magnetic properties of Mn2.5 Ga films were investigated in this work. The annealing temperature of 400°C was found to be the optimum condition to obtain the films with high perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) (Ku eff = 7.8 × 106 erg/cm3) and smooth surface (Ra ¿ 0.15 nm). The PMA property was maintained in the 5 nm thick film, and deterioration of the PMA properties with decreasing film thickness can be ascribed to the tensile strain existed in the thin Mn2.5 Ga films.
