"Low permeability of NiFe film?"



2000

Hi,

We electroplated NiFe thin film (3 to 10 microns).

The composition is around 76/24 or Fe (23-27%) using X'ray analysis. The Hc (coercivity) is very small (smaller than 0.2 Oe) and Ms (Saturation magnetization) is reasonable. But the initial permeability (mu) is too small, around (300 - 600). What is the reasons causing this low permeability?

Thanks alot.

Probably your anisotropy field, Hk, is too high. The permeability is inversely proportional to Hk. You may want to try "hard axis annealing" in a strong magnetic field (a few hundred Oe), with the sample hard axis parallel to the field, for a few hours at 150-300 degrees C. For a discussion of this and related issues see P.C. Andricacos and L.T. Romankiw, pp. 220-321, in Advances in Electrochemical Science and Engineering, vol. 3, H. Gerischer and C.W. Tobias (editors), VCH.
