Abstract

Current-perpendicular-to-plane magnetoresistance was measured for ferrimagnetic Co/Gd multilayers which have twisted spin structure accompanied with spin-flop transition. The influence of twisted spin structure on the electronic transport was exclusively obtained, eliminating the effect of anisotropic magnetoresistance. MR curves showed a downturn around the spin-flop field, suggesting that the formation of twisted spin structure leads to a negative resistance change.
