The scaling of anomalous Hall resistivity on longitudinal resistivity has been intensively studied in different magnetic systems, including multilayer and granular films, to examine whether a skew scattering or a side jump mechanism dominates in the origin of anomalous Hall effect (AHE). The scaling law is based on the premise that both resistivities are a consequence of electron scattering by the imperfections in the materials. By studying the anomalous Hall effect in the simple Fe/Cu bilayers, it was demonstrated that the measured anomalous Hall effect should not follow the scaling laws derived from skew scattering or side jump mechanism due to the short-circuit and shunting effects of the non-magnetic layers.
