Thermo-e.m.f. anisotropy in magnetic films of Co and Ni and its comparison with anisotropy in electrical conductivity

  • B. Sinha
  • A. N. Nigam


Films of cobalt and nickel were electroplated in the presence of an external magnetic-induction field. This resulted in the deposition of magnetic films which show, in addition to a magnetic anisotropy, also thermo-e.m.f. anisotropy. The latter is a new effect, not deriving from the anisotropy in electrical conduction deduced earlier by Kornevet al. on the basis of measurements of transmission coefficients of polarized RF field.
