Giant magnetoimpedance effect (GMI) is a subject of special interest proved by applied electrodynamic and technological applications. GMI effect in ferromagnetic tubes is connected with the high sensitivity of the magnetic system to a circular magnetic field near the spin-reorientation magnetic phase transitions offering high sensitivity with respect to an external magnetic field. In this work the non-magnetic CuBe wires were covered by Fe20Co6Ni74 layers by electrodeposition. The thickness of 1 μm for magnetic layer was high enough in order to ensure the high GMI value. Longitudinal magnetic anisotropy was induced by post preparation annealing in a magnetic field of 160 A/m at 320℃ during 1 hour in order to obtain appropriate magnetisation process. Angular dependencies of GMI were measured in a frequency range of 1 to 10 MHz for driving currents of 2.5 to 20 mA. High longitudinal GMI of the order of 400% was observed at quite low frequency of 1 MHz. The highest value of the sensitivity of 520%/Oe was found for the active resistance: Linear sensitivities of 0.023 Ω/° and 0.05 Ω/° were observed for reasonably low fields of 240 and275 A/m respectively for small angles, where planar GMI elements are less effective.
