Magnetism of CrAu(001) superlattices is investigated using local spin density energy band approach. Sizable ferromagnetic moments (3μB) are found on Cr in superlattices with monolayer Cr, independent of Au thickness. For thicker Cr layers, the moment of the interface Cr is reduced but remains much larger than the bulk value.
