A spin valve was developed that showed giant magnetoresistance of 20%. It showed an exchange bias field of over 1000 Oe. The giant magnetoresistance was attributed to an increase in sheet resistance change. By the use of this method, it was possible to modify reflective oxide layers of the free and the capping layers.
