Abstract

Co-Ni-Cu/Cu multilayered nanowires were prepared by electrodeposition using nanoporous aluminum oxide membranes rather than the more usual track-etched polycarbonate membranes as templates. Very large values of the current perpendicular to plane giant magnetoresistance (CPP-GMR) were recorded: 55% at room temperature and 115% at 77 K. The use of aluminum oxide membranes also made possible a study of the effects of annealing on the CPP-GMR.
