Magnetooptical and magnetoresistive properties of Co/Cu(Au)-based spin-valve structures

A new method for the formation of functional elements of spin-valve structures is proposed, which is based on the sequential condensation of nanodimensional Co, Cu, Au, and Cr layers with certain heat treatments in the course of condensation. The magnetooptical and magnetoresistive properties of structures obtained using the proposed method have been studied. Relationships between these properties and the structure and phase state of the spin-valve sandwiches and their components are established.
