We propose a concept of hybrid nanoelectronic-magnetic device for logic integrated platforms made of magnetic core-shell nanoparticles deposited onto prepatterned Si (111) substrate with basic logic circuitry made of metallic conductive lines. The synthesis of magnetic material and the creation of nanoelectronic prepatterned interdigitated die is reported and its capabilities are demonstrated in terms of magnetotransport properties. The laser pyrolysis method is employed in order to synthesize magnetic core-shell Fe / FeC nanoparticles with sizes between 12 – 15 nm. E-beam lithography has been used in order to design and execute two different layouts of interdigitated die, prepatterned with logic capacity, one with two pads and 50 microns thick conductive metallic lines, another one with 4 pads and parallel 5 microns thick conductive lines separated by 5 microns thick spacer. The as-obtained structures are morphologically characterized by means of optical, scanning and transmission electron microscopies. As-synthesized core-shell nanoparticles have been magnetically characterized inasmuch as the hybrid device obtained by depositing centrifugated and dispersed core-shell nanoparticles from liquid carrier solutions. For the first time, a significant giant magnetoresistive (GMR) effect has been observed and measured for the hybrid architectured device made of Fe / FeC nanosized materials on pre-patterned interdigitated die. A ∆R/R of 8% at 4.2 K has been measured from conductivity-in-plane electron transport measurements. This opens possibilities for the use of such devices as arrays of nanosensors and in spintronic applications.
