Abstract: Granular cosputtered Co-52(SiO2)(48) thin films were thermally treated at different temperatures and their magnetotransport and structural properties were investigated. Hall resistivity increases with annealing temperature (T-a), up to T-a=250 degrees C, and then decreases to a minimum for T-a=400 degrees C. The structural analysis was based on small-angle x-ray scattering results. A model of a polydisperse system of hard spheres was used to retrieve structural parameters. Results reveal that a volume fraction of Co atoms (approximately 25%) are forming nanospheres. The giant Hall effect depends on a particular combination of nanoparticle diameter, size distribution, and interparticle distance.
