The magnetic properties of ordered nanoscale Co/Cu/Py multilayer antidot films with different pore sizes prepared on top of nanoporous alumina membranes are presented. By using Co and Py films separated by a Cu thin layer, and tuning the pore diameters of the NAMs we were able to play with the coercivity of the films and observe stepped magnetization curves, as a consequence of the different coercivities of the Co and Py films. The magnetic properties of the multilayer antidots have been
