Thick films of nearly equiatomic Co–Pt produced by electrodeposition into nanoporous membranes exhibit an isotropic magnetic phase with square hysteresis loops sMr /Ms=0.95d and coercivity of up to 1.3 T. The initial magnetization curve is characteristic of pinning-type magnets. The coercivity can be controlled by the choice of annealing temperature or… CONTINUE READING
