Electrochemical Control of the Magnetic Properties of Co and CoCu/Co Nanowires

Abstract:

Article Preview

Using appropriate electrodeposition conditions, it is shown that the structural and magnetic properties of arrays of Co and CoCu/Co nanowires can be controlled. The hcp c axis orientation can be oriented parallel or perpendicular to the wire axis simply by changing the pH of the electrolytic solution and/or deposition rate. This selected orientation of the c axis leads to a drastic change in overall magnetic anisotropy and is promising for the fabrication of spin valves structures by electrodeposition.
