Arrays of semimetallic Bi nanowires have been successfully fabricated by electrodeposition. Each nanowire consists of elongated Bi grains along the wire direction. Very large positive magnetoresistance of 300% at low temperatures and 70% at room temperature with quasilinear field dependence has been observed. These features are desirable for wide-range field sensing applications. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
