V/Fe composition-modulated structures have been grown on the (0001) surface of a sapphire substrate in an UHV evaporator. X-ray θ-2θ scans showed that the samples had a bcc (110) texture with a strong composition modulation. Samples with three atomic planes of Fe separated by thick layers of V showed a linear temperature dependence of the saturation magnetization over the range 5-400 K. This behavior is expected for the Bloch spin wave contribution to the magnetization of a 2D ferromagnet. Hysteresis measurements also confirmed that the samples were ferromagnetic. Superconductivity has been seen in samples with very thick V layers.
