We have already reported Fe-Ni films with good soft magnetic properties prepared by using an electroplating method. In the present study, we employed an annealing for further improvement in soft magnetic properties of the electroplated Fe-Ni films. The annealing reduces the coercivity of the films, and the reduction rate of the coercivity depended on the Clion concentration in the bath. The Fe 22 Ni 78 films prepared in the plating bath with high Clion concentration showed large reduction rate
