Abstract

In this study, Co-Al2O3 nano-composite films containing parallel-oriented cobalt nano-cylinders with length-to-diameter aspect ratios of ca. 4000 are synthesized to acquire a uniaxial magnetization property. The Co nano-cylinders were electrodeposited into anodized aluminum oxide films with numerous nano-channels under a low over-potential of less than 0.1 V using an acidic aqueous solution containing CoCl2 at 75 °C. The long axis of Co nano-cylinders, which are electrodeposited at cathode potential of −0.58 V vs. Ag/AgCl, coincides with the c axis of hexagonal close packed (hcp)-Co. The Co-Al2O3 nano-composite films show a uniaxial magnetization behavior due to the large shape anisotropy of Co nano-cylinders and the large magneto-crystalline anisotropy of the hcp-Co crystal structure. We achieved coercivity and squareness values of up to 2.4 and 1.0 kOe, respectively. This study shows an effective way to produce nano-composite films of altered coercivities.
