First-principles full-potential linearized augmented plane-wave calculations were performed to evaluate the magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy for Fe monolayers and bilayers on Mo͑110͒ and W͑110͒ substrates. In-plane ͓11 0͔ easy axes were found for these systems due to the large in-plane interface anisotropy. Our theoretical results compare well with previous experimental observations.
