High Frequency Magnetoimpedance of FeNi/Cu/FeNi Sensitive Elements with Different Geometries
In this work magnetoimpedance (MI) behaviour was studied experimentally for Fe19Ni81(175 nm)/Cu(350 nm)/Fe19Ni81(175 nm) sensitive elements deposited by rf-sputtering. A constant magnetic field was applied in plane of the sandwiches during deposition perpendicular to the Cu-lead in order to induce a magnetic anisotropy. Sandwiches with different width (w) of FeNi parts were obtained. The complex impedance was measured as a function of the external magnetic field for a frequency range of 1 MHz to 700 MHz for MI elements with different geometries. Some of MI experimental data are comparatively analysed with finite elements numerical calculations data. The obtained results can be useful for optimization of the design of miniaturized MI detectors.
