Magnetization reversal characteristics of exchange-coupled magnetic films obtained by alternately electrodepositing soft Ni-Fe and hard Ni-Co layers on a wire substrate were studied with the help of a critical switching curve tracer. It is considered that the variety of magnetic nehaviour observed in such systems may serve, in some cases, as a simple model for understanding magnetization processes in soft magnetic materials containing magnetically hard regions larger than the domain wall width.
