The magnetization reversal in MnF2/Fe bialayers was studied using coherent rotation via a two-stage process. The rotation of the exchange biased bilayers was analyzed using polarized neutron reflectrometry and anisotropic magnetoresistance techniques. The results showed asymmetry in the magnetization reversal process in the exchange biased systems.
