    We tried to enhance the grain isolation of CoPtCr–SiO2 media with Pd seed layers while simultaneously inducing the second energy term of the uniaxial anisotropy, Ku2. The addition of 5%N2 to the Ar gas used during the deposition of the Pd seed layer was found to reduce the Pd grain size....

    The skyrmionic state is an exciting realm of study and the skyrmions are being explored as the promising candidates of information carriers. In most systems, the skyrmions originate from the Dzyaloshinsky-Moriya interaction (DMI). However, in this work, it is demonstrated that in the...

    We propose an elastic-anisotropy measure. Zener’s familiar anisotropy index A=2C44/(C11-C12) applies only to cubic symmetry [Elasticity and Anelasticity of Metals (University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1948), p. 16]. Its extension to hexagonal symmetry creates ambiguities. Extension to...
