    We present studies of the transport properties of a Pb82Bi 18 and Sn superconducting film with an array of parallel nickel or cobalt magnetic nanostripes (500 nm period) deposited on the top of a germanium insulating layer covering the superconducting film surface. The critical current parallel to the stripes is significantly larger than critical current perpendicular to the stripes for Pb82Bi18.
