Our theoretical study reveals the dependence of quantum conductance of Au-Co nanowires on their atomic structure. The results show the emergence of spin-filter state in one-dimensional Au-Co bimetallic nanowires. We found the existence of two transmission regime in Au-Co nanowires with low and high conductivity 1G0 and 2G0 for “zig-zag” and linear nanowire correspondingly. The study of transmission spectra of Au-Co nanowires reveals the control capability of spin transport regime by changing of bias voltage between bulk electrodes.
