Abstract

We studied the effects of copper doping on the microstructure and magnetic properties of CoPt nanowires fabricated in anodized aluminium oxide (AAO) nanotemplates by electrodeposition. The morphological observation indicates well-formed CoPt and CoPtCu nanowires, while the structural analysis shows that fcc- Co3 Pt phase exists prior to annealing and is retained in the doped nanowires, with minor hcp-CoPt phase postannealing. The doping causes shrinkage of the lattice spacing prior to annealing due to the insertion of smaller copper atoms. Compared to the undoped CoPt nanowires, the magnetic measurements reveal significant enhancement in the magnetic properties of the CoPtCu nanowire postannealing, resulting in the more rapid increase in the coercivity with annealing temperature.
