Abstract

Low temperature magnetization reversal measurements were performed on individual permalloy nanowires of diameters between 30 and 60 nm. During the electrochemical growth of the wire, a defect was induced by a short pulse in the deposition potential modifying locally the microstructure and composition. Magnetic measurements performed with micro-superconducting quantum interference devices were performed. The angular dependence of switching field revealed significant deviations from classical predictions. For specific angles, magnetization curves indicate a reversal occurring in two steps.
