Proximity-induced magnetization (PIM) has broad implications across interface-driven spintronics applications employing spin-currents. We directly determine the scaling between PIM in Pt and the temperature-dependent interface magnetization in an adjacent ferromagnet (FM) using depth-resolved magnetometry. The magnetization due to PIM does not follow the generally expected linear scaling with the FM interface magnetization, as a function of temperature. Instead, it vanishes whilst the FM interface magnetization remains. The effective magnetic susceptibilities of heavy metal (HM) layers are shown to give rise to the previously unexplained asymmetric PIM found in HM/FM/HM trilayers.
