High sensitivity magnetization measurements of nanoscale cobalt clusters

Abstract

Presented is a novel high sensitivity magnetometer allowing us to measure the magnetization reversal of about IO4 pB corresponding to a sensitivity of about IO-r6 emu. The detector is a niobium micro-bridge DC superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), fabricated using electron-beam lithography. It is operational in the temperature range of O-7 K. Furthermore, we present a method to deposit on the SQUID loop a small number of Co clusters of about 2-5 nm in diameter. The first results obtained on these samples show that there is still a ferromagnetic coupling between the clusters and the magnetization reversal takes place by small avalanches
