|Title:||Optimizing the GMR of Symmetric and Bottom Spin Valves|
|Published:||January 01, 1996|
|Abstract:||We have attempted to optimize the values of the giant magnetoresistance in symmetric spin valves of the type NiO/Co/Cu/Co/Cu/Co/NiO (achieving 23.4%) and in bottom spin valves of the type Co/Cu/Co/NiO (achieving 17.0%), the largest values ever reported for such structures. The key elements in this achievement are improved vacuum conditions and careful attention to the film thicknesses.|
