We have investigated CoNiFe and CoNiFe-C electrodeposited by pulse reverse plating (PRP) and direct current (DC) techniques. CoNiFe(PRP) films with composition Co(59.4)Fe(27.7)Ni(12.8) show coercivity of 95Am(-1) (1.2 Oe) and magnetization saturation flux (mu(0)M(s)) of 1.8 T. Resistivity of CoNiFe (PRP) is about 24 mu Omega cm and permeability remains almost constant mu(')(r) similar to 475 up to 30 MHz with a quality factor (Q) larger than 10. Additionally, the permeability spectra analysis shows that CoNiFe exhibits a classical eddy current loss at zero bias field and ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) when biased with 0.05 T. Furthermore, a crossover between eddy current and FMR loss is observed for CoNiFe-PRP when baised with 0.05 T. DC and PRP plated CoNiFe-C, which have resistivity and permeability of 85, 38 mu Omega cm, mu(')(r) = 165 and 35 with Q > 10 up to 320 MHz, respectively, showed only ferromagnetic resonance losses. The ferromagnetic resonance peaks in CoNiFe and CoNiFe-C are broad and resembles a Gaussian distribution of FMR frequencies. The incorporation of C to CoNiFe reduces eddy current loss, but also reduces the FMR frequency. (C) 2008 Elsevier B. V. All rights reserved.
