We report on Cu/Ni paired superlattice conductors featuring reduced radio frequency (RF) loss based on eddy current cancelling (ECC). Also, the effects of the width and the individual layer thickness of the superlattice conductors have been studied for improved RF performance. The usage of Ni as the ferromagnetic material in the non-ferromagnetic/ferromagnetic superlattice structure is advantageous as it has a high contrast between the in-plane and out-of-plane magnetic coercivity fields making… Expand
