Title: Post magnetic field annealing effect on magnetic and structural properties of Co{sub 80}Pt{sub 20} nanowires and nanotubes fabricated by electrochemical method

Highly ordered Co{sub 80}Pt{sub 20} nanowires (NWs) and nanotubes (NTs) have been synthesized by low cost DC electrochemical deposition method with constant stirring during the fabrication process in anodic aluminum oxide nano-templates with average pore diameter of about 200 nm. The structural and magnetic properties of nanostructures have been investigated before and after simple and magnetic field annealing. Magnetic field of 1 T has been applied during annealing process in the direction perpendicular to NWs and NTs axis. X-Ray Diffraction analysis shows face centered cubic (fcc) as the dominant phase for Co{sub 80}Pt{sub 20} NWs and post annealing led to better crystallinity with retained fcc phase. Furthermore, magnetic properties, including saturation magnetization (M{sub s}), squareness ratio (M{sub r}/M{sub s}), and coercivity (H{sub c}), have been investigated as a function of annealing temperature by Vibrating Sample Magnetometer.
