We have investigated the effect of external magnetic field exercised during the fabrication of the Co and CoCu multilayer nanowires in anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) templates using pulse electrodeposition. It is found that the effect becomes significant when the pore size is small. Deterioration occurs in the magnetic properties for the Co nanowires studied, whereas a distinct enhancement in the magnetic properties for the CuCo multilayer nanowires is achieved by applying an external magnetic field during nanowire growth using the AAO template comprising pores of 50 nm diameter.
