The high-frequency properties of the FeCo-SiO2 monolayer nanogranular films and FeCo/(FeCo)0.63(SiO2)0.37 multilayer nanogranular films which were elaborated on flexible substrates by magnetron sputtering system were studied. Compared to the monolayer films with the same FeCo content, the multilayer structures comprised of FeCo/(FeCo)0.63(SiO2)0.37 exhibit more excellent properties that the real and imaginary parts of permeability, more than the double value of the monolayer, increase to 250 and 350, respectively. The variation was considered owing to the reduction of the anisotropy field.
