Discontinuous metal–insulator multilayers [Co80Fe20(t)/Al2O3(3 nm)]n were studied by SQUID magnetometry and AC susceptometry. CoFe forms ferromagnetic particles in the Al2O3 matrix. In this paper, we focus on the field dependence of the AC susceptibility of samples with t=1.3 nm. We find strong evidence for transitions from a superpara- to a superferromagnetic and, finally, to a reentrant superspin glass previous state.
