The influence of a varying metal-to-glass ratio on the GMI effect in amorphous glass-coated Co70.3Fe3.7B10Si13Cr3 microwires has been investigated. In the range of frequencies investigated (1–10 MHz), the magnitude of the GMI effect increases as the metal-to-glass ratio (h) increases from 4.11 to 9.29. The GMI curves for the h=4.11 microwire exhibit a single-peak feature for f≤1 MHz and a double-peak feature for f>1 MHz, whereas a consistent double-peak feature is observed for microwires with h=8.07,8.72, and 9.29. The largest GMI effect is achieved for microwires with h=9.29. The anisotropy field , determined from GMI curves, increases with h=4.11 to h=8.07 and decreases when h>8.07. The calculated radial stress decreases as h increases from 4.11 to 9.29. These results provide further insights into the correlation between the GMI effect and microwire dimensions towards the GMI optimization of amorphous glass-coated magnetic microwires for sensor applications.
