We study theoretically the giant magnetoresistance () effect of 2-dimensional electron system (2DES) by the transfer matrix method. To produce the inhomogeneous magnetic field, two magnetic strips are pre-deposited on the surface of 2DES. In our work, we fix the magnetization in one magnetic strip and adjust the tilting angle of magnetization in the other. The result shows that the electronic transmission and conductance vary significantly for different . The minimum conductance can be obtained at = which corresponds to the magnetization anti-parallel alignment. The magnetoresistance ratio () calculation also indicates we would get the maximum in that case. Furthermore, we consider the magnetization dependence of in this work. When increases, peaks get higher and broader and more numbers of peaks can be observed. These results offer an alternative to get a tunable device which can be controlled by adjusting the magnetization and the magnetized angle .
