Abstract
We present a technique for probing the magnetic configurations in ferromagnetic rings
electrically without placing the electrical contact leads directly on the nanorings, but on wires
attached to the ring structures. The magnetic configurations in pseudo spin valve rectangular
and elliptical rings of width in the range from 60 to 300 nm have been systematically mapped
using this technique. The giant magnetoresistance (GMR) responses for both the rings exhibit
distinct switching fields and features corresponding to identifiable magnetization states in
different segments of the nanostructures.
