Abstract

Abstract The magnetoresistance of single Co nanowires of various widths is investigated at low temperatures applying magnetic fields μ 0 H up to 4.5 T. The in-plane longitudinal magnetoresistance shows pronounced features at coercive fields H c explained by the anisotropic magnetoresistance indicating the magnetization reversal process. Monte Carlo simulations present the magnetization distribution during the reversal process, revealing different mechanisms depending on the wire width.
