In order to increase the resistivity of electroless-deposited high-Bs CoNiFeB thin films, it was decided to investigate the effect of adding a β-alanine containing complexing agent to the plating bath. The resistivity (ρ) gradually increased as the β-alanine concentration was increased. CoNiFeB thin films with desirable soft magnetic properties, Bs = 17-17.5 kG and Hc < 3.0 Oe, were obtained under these conditions with ρ value (70-90 μΩ cm) dependant on carbon incorporation in the films. It has been suggested that carbon impurities in the films resulting from the use of the β-alanine complexing agent containing -NH2 group causes electron scattering, leading to an increase in the resistivity.
