PtMn based Spin-valves with or without specular reflective thin oxide layers, OL, were prepared by sputtering. The MR ratios and ΔRs of the spin-valves without OL were about 8% and 1.2 Ω. The values were increased up to 12-15% and ⊇2.6 Ω by inserting an OL into the pinned and free layers. PtMn based spin-valves with synthetic AF and OL as the pinning layers were also studied. The MR ratio and ΔRs were about 11% and 2.9 Ω. These PtMn based spin-valves showed better thermal stability than IrMn based spin-valves
