Giant magnetoresistance measurements and x-ray diffractograms of both nickel-copper and cobalt-copper multilayer systems are contrasted with each other and compared to theoretical predictions, in order to determine the superlattice structure and electromagnetic properties of each. The results demonstrate that the replacement of nickel by cobalt significantly enhances the GMR effect and that the magnitude of this effect is related to the copper, or non-magnetic, layer thickness in a predictable fashion.Dept. of Physics.
