Magnetoresistance Peculiarities in Ferromagnetic-Polymer Structure
Two types of magnetoresistive effects can be observed in the multilayer structure of the ferromagnet/polydiphenylenephthalide/non-magnetic metal. One can see the effect of resistance switching in an external magnetic field and also the angular magnetoresistive dependence. The similarities and differences of these effects and other known magnetoresistive effects are considered. The conclusion is drawn that the peculiarities of the magnetoresistance in the ferromagnetic-polymer system are formed in the ferromagnet-polymer interface and the special features of charge injection into the conductive nanoscale channels of the polymer film have the determinative importance.
