1. A method for fabricating a compound material, the method comprising:
providing a first discrete material layer having a first thickness dimension, the first discrete material layer comprising a first material having a first magnetic susceptibility;
depositing a second discrete material layer having a second thickness dimension over the first discrete material layer, the second discrete material layer comprising a second material having a second magnetic susceptibility different from that of the first material; and
depositing a third discrete material layer of titanium or copper between the first discrete material layer and the second discrete material layer, the third discrete material layer comprising a third material having a third magnetic susceptibility different from those of the first and second materials, wherein the third discrete material layer is configured as a non-magnetic adhesion layer with respect to the first and second discrete material layers, and the relative first, second, and third thickness dimensions are selected to provide the desired magnetic susceptibility of the compound material comprising the first, second, and third discrete material layers;
and wherein one of:
the first discrete material layer is gold and the second discrete material layer is tungsten carbide, or
the first discrete material layer is a zirconium oxide ceramic and the second discrete material layer is an yttrium oxide ceramic.
