Abstract: The influence of nano-oxide layer (NOL) inserted at different positions on interlayer coupling (Hin), coercivity of free layer (Hcf), exchange bias (Hex) and MR ratio of IrMn pinned bottom type spin-valves (SV) were studied. Weak antiferromagnetic interlayer coupling was observed in NOL-added SV. The NOL inside pinned layer and after free layer can enhance the MR ratio remarkably. MR of SV with a structure Ta3/NiFe2/IrMn6/ CoFe1/NOL/CoFe2.3/Cu2.2/CoFe2.3/AlO reached 18.2%. This is one of the best values ever reported for all-metal single spin-valves. © 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.
