Surface damage due to etching was investigated in permalloy (Ni81Fe19) thin films. The films were etched by ion beam etching or reactive ion etching and changes in magnetic properties with etching time was investigated. Low energy ion bombardment affected the soft magnetic properties of the films, leading to consequent deterioration of the magnetic softness.
