The determination of exchange bias and magnetic anisotropies in a Co layer in a single-crystalline FeF2 film was reported. A model was developed that quantitatively described the exchange bias and the anisotropies over the whole temperature range, both above and below Néel temperature TN. It was shown that large magnetic anisotropies were induced in a ferromagnetic film deposited on an antiferromagnetic substrate even well above TN of the antiferromagnet.
