Abstract

We report on the preparation of bottom spin valves combining a high giant magnetoresistance effect (above 10%) with a soft-magnetic behavior (coercivities of a few hundreds of A/m). By optimization of film composition and preparation conditions, it is possible to obtain materials having magnetoresistance values around 16%, which display minor loop coercivities of 0.2 kA/m, and sensitivities of 11%/kA/m.
