Asymmetric giant magnetoimpedance (AGMI) effect has been investigated in as-prepared and current annealed amorphous (Co0.9Fe0.05Ni0.05)(75)Si15B10 ribbons. Asymmetry was created by micro magnets. Different numbers of magnets were used and it was found that increasing number of magnet, the shift in AGMI curves increases. When two micro magnets were placed 1 cm away from the ends of ribbon, a distortion in two peak shape of the GMI curve was observed. At high frequency range, a linear change in the AGMI was observed for the current annealed sample. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
