Abstract

We discuss the effect of the superlattice potential on the magnetotransport properties of magnetic multilayers for current parallel and perpendicular to the plane of the layers. While quantum well states affect the magnetotransport, they are not the primary origin of the giant magnetoresistance observed in these materials for current in the plane of the layers. In general, it is necessary to include both spin-dependent scattering and the effects of superlattice potentials in order to explain the magnetoresistance of multilayered structure.
