Systematic changes were observed in magnetostriction and magnetoresistance ratio for NiFe/Ag multilayers as a function of annealing temperature. Optimal multilayer configurations (number of bilayers and Ag layer thickness) can be engineered to achieve zero magnetostriction concurrent with high magnetoresistance sensitivity. This feature makes the NiFe/Ag multilayers potentially useful for high-performance magnetic recording read-sensors.
