We proposed a method to fabricate perpendicular magnetic nanotracks in the cobalt oxide/palladium multilayer films using UV-nanoimprinting lithography and low-energy hydrogen-ion irradiation. This is a method to magnetize UV-imprinted intaglio nanotracks via low-energy hydrogen ion irradiation, resulting the irradiated region are magnetically separated from the non-irradiated region. Multilayered magnetic nanotracks with a line width of 140 nm, which were fabricated by this parallel process without additional dry etching process, exhibited a saturation magnetization of 290 emu cm-3 and a coercivity of 2 kOe. This study demonstrates a cost-effective mass production of multilayered perpendicular magnetic nanotracks and offers the possibility to achieve high density storage and memory devices.
