Paper Abstract

Highly ordered Co/Ag nanowire arrays have been successfully prepared by electrochemical deposition method using anodic alumina membranes (AAMS) as template. Electrolytes used in our study were the mixed solution of cobalt sulphate and silver nitrate. Experimental parameters including concentrations of different electrolytes, deposition potential, reaction time, temperature and frequency were investigated in detail. The microstructures and chemical composition of Co/Ag nanowires were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). XRD patterns of Co/Ag nanowires clearly showed that they presented a cubic crystalline structure. Magnetic properties of Co/Ag nanowires were determined by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The hysteresis loops show that all of the nanowires exhibited magnetic anisotropy with the easy axis along the nanowires. In this orientation, the nanowire arrays have large coercive field and high squareness. The hard axis direction is perpendicular to the nanowires. In this orientation, the nanowire arrays have small coercive field and low squareness.
