The magnetic structure (including domanization) of a thin ferromagnetic film in contact with a rigid antiferromagnet is investigated under the assumption that the interface is rough and contains single isolated atomic steps of opposite signs, isolated “dipole of the steps” and a space-ordered periodic system of steps of alternate signs.
