Exchange coupling in the complex magnetic sandwich structures containing nonmagnetic (NM) and ferromagnetic (FM) layers composed of two different ferromagnetic metals has been studied within the framework of the quantum wells model. The strength of the exchange coupling in the multilayer structure with thin layers of a second ferromagnetic material inserted at the interface of FM/NM/FM sandwich was calculated at various physical situations. In one case the exponential dependence of the exchange coupling on the thickness of the interface ferromagnetic layer has been obtained in striking resemblance to the Parkin experimental results for magnetoresistance (S. S. P. Parkin, Phys. Rev. Lett. , 71 (1993) 1641).
