Abstract

The Co and multilayered Co/Cu nanowire arrays were fabricated by pulsed DC electrodeposition using anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) templates. Each nanowire has the length of 20 μm and the diameter of 200 nm. The layer thickness of Co layer was slightly decreased even if the deposition time was fixed as Cu deposition time increased due to the metal exchange. Unlike the Co nanowire array case, multilayered Co/Cu nanowire array exhibited an easy magnetization direction perpendicular to the nanowire axis due to the separation of Co layers.
