|Title:||MAGNETIC AND MAGNETOTRANSPORT PROPERTIES IN CO5CU95 MELT-SPUN ALLOYS|
|Abstract:||Giant magnetoresistance (GMR) has been observed in Co5Cu95 alloys fabricated by melt-spinning. The highest MR change of 28.0% occurs for Co5Cu95 after annealing at 450 degrees C for 30 min. Based on the superparamagnetic assumption, the average size of Co particles embedded in Cu matrix, ranging from 3.0 to 6.0 nm, has been determined by simulating the magnetization curves at 295 K which is higher than the blocking temperatures for the samples. Comparison with phenomenological theory for GMR indicates that the interfacial spin-dependent scattering is the dominant scattering mechanism underlying GMR origin in granular systems. Additionally, for the samples in as-quenched state or annealed at temperature T-A=350 degrees C, the electron hybridization and superparamagnetic behaviors of fine Co particles may be responsible for the low value of MR change.|
