Electrochemical deposition and magnetic properties of cobalt and iron thin films on substrate of KIT-6/ITO

Cobalt and iron thin films were successfully electrodeposited on the KIT-6/ITO substrate. The films consisted of mesoporous structure (the average pore size of which was estimated at ~5 nm) and large specific surface area (431 m2/g). The nanofilms were further characterized by X-ray diffractometer, scanning electron microscope, and vibrating sample magnetometer. The results indicated that the Fe magnetic films tend to grow preferentially along Fe (002) crystal direction while the Co film grew along both (101) and (220) crystal directions. The as-obtained magnetic metal films exhibited ferromagnetic behavior and both the values of coercivities parallel to the films were examined below 50 Oe.
