AbstractThe effect of hydrostatic pressure at room temperature on the resistance and magnetoresistance (MR) of a discontinuous metal-insulator multilayer (DMIM) of nominal composition [Fe(t Fe = 0.7 nm)/MgO(t MgO = 3 nm)]15 has been studied. The resistivity of the DMIM, ρ, decreases linearly with pressure indicating an increase in conduction via tunneling effect. The value of coefficient (1/ρ 0)dρ/dP = -3.9 × 10-2 kbar-1 is higher than reported values in other granular films implying that the electronic state of the DMIM is close to the iron percolation threshold. At the maximum applied magnetic field (3 kOe) the MR ratio increases from 0.6% at ambient pressure to 1.1% at 7 kbar. This result can be explained by a reduction of the tunnel barrier width induced by the hydrostatic pressure. © 2013 The Korean Physical Society.
