NiFeCo-An Alternative to Permalloy for Bubble Domain Detection?

View publication

Abstract

The characteristics of bubble domain sensors fabricated from ternary NiFeCo films have been studied and compared with Permalloy film sensors. In 350 Å thick films, the ternary alloy exhibits a magnetoresistance ratio of 3.5 percent in contrast to 2.8 percent for Permalloy films prepared under similar conditions. Sensor sensitivity in functional bubble chips is correspondingly greater, while the sensor noise level is equal to-or lower than-that obtained with the Permalloy detector. Low coercivity and dispersion in NiFeCo films aid in producing an overall improvement in signal-to-noise ratio. The performance of NiFeCo sensors operating in 1-μm bubble ion-implanted contiguous-disk devices is described. © 1983 IEEE
