The magnetization reversal and magnetoresistance of two-dimensional arrays of aligned Fe-filled carbon nanotubes have been investigated. Our results show a linear temperature dependence of the coercivity above 10 K and a relative large hysteresis for the applied field perpendicular to the nanowires axes. A continuous decrease of the magnetoresistance for both field directions is observed. We attribute this behavior to the anisotropic nature of the system.
