We describe a simple model for the temperature dependence of the exchange bias and related effects that result from coupling a ferromagnetic thin film to a polycrystalline antiferromagnetic film. In this model, an important source of temperature dependence comes from thermal instabilities of the antiferromagnetic state in the antiferromagnetic grains, much as occurs in superparamagnetic grains. At low enough temperatures, the antiferromagnetic state in each grain is stable as the ferromagneticdoi:10.1103/physrevb.60.12950 fatcat:yq2my5na5rbyzmvmvqrixx76ty
