The magnetic behavior of cross contacting current perpendicular to plane giant magnetoresistance structure fabricated by two-step ion milling technique was studied. The multilayer pillars with various layer structures and a lateral dimension were embedded between orthogonal top and bottom electrodes. The results showed that the different switching field of Co layers were attributed to the variation of the dipole fields at each layer.
