Magnetic measurements on electrodeposited Ni-Cu/Cu multilayers indicated a continuous composition change at the magnetic-nonmagnetic interfaces. A comparison of the room-temperature magnetoresistance (MR) curves for the electrodeposited bulk Ni81Cu19 alloy and for a pulse-plated multilayer was shown. The bulk Ni81Cu19 alloy exhibited a typical anisotropic MR behaviour similar to that of pure Ni. The changes observed below 0.5 kOe and around 1 kOe can be ascribed to magnetization processes by domain wall displacement and domain rotation, respectively. The linear decrease of MR for higher fields is due to the approach of the magnetization to the saturation value at 0 K.
