Vertically and horizontally aligned micro wire arrays with the magnetic hard axis perpendicular to the length of the wire are micro-fabricated from zero-magnetostrictive CoNbZr film. Annealing produced a 180-degree domain pattern, small coercive force and good permeability. Using the micro wire array with line/space = 9 μm/2 μm, an RF integrated inductor exhibited L = 7.5 nH(+11% of air core's), R = 7.6 Ω and Q = 6.3 (almost same as the air core's).
