Magnetic Properties of Fe-Co Films with Tuneable In-Plane Uniaxial Anisotropy Prepared by Electrodeposition
Fe-Co soft magnetic films with tuneable in-plane uniaxial anisotropy were successfully electrodeposited onto ITO conductive glass. The influence of composition and electrolyte temperature on in-plane magnetic anisotropy field was investigated. Our results show that the in-plane uniaxial anisotropy can be induced by a magnetic field applied in the film plane during electrodeposition. Fe-Co films with various Fe content in the range from 35 at.% to 53 at.% were obtained and the magnetic anisotropy field was very sensitive to the composition. Moreover, the influence of electrolyte temperature on magnetic anisotropy field was investigated and it was found that the in-plane uniaxial anisotropy field can be tuned by varying the electrolyte temperature from 5 to 40 oC.
