ABSTRACT
This work demonstrates, by frequency-dependent electrical measurements, significant variation associated with interfacial defects in Co/ZnO nanocomposites (NCs) for electrical and magnetic transport. Radio-frequency impedance measurements showed that heat treatment in an ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) increased interfacial defect density. Interfacial defects-assisted transport reduced the magnetoresistance (MR) ratio from 5.04% for the as-grown sample to 0.17% following heat treatment in UHV. The evolution of the onset frequency of power-law dispersion conductivity revealed that the increase in the interfacial defect density in Co/ZnO NCs upon heat treatment was consistent with the change in MR.
