ABSTRACT
FePt/B[sub 2]O[sub 3] multilayers were deposited by magnetron sputtering onto 7059 glass substrates. By annealing the as-deposited films at 550 °C, nanostructured FePt:B[sub 2]O[sub 3] films consisting of FePt grains with L1[sub 0] structure, embedded in a glassy B[sub 2]O[sub 3] matrix, were obtained. The c axes of the FePt grains can be made to align with the film normal direction, which results in a perpendicular anisotropy constant of 3.5x10[sup 7] erg/cc. The films remain layered structures after annealing when the B[sub 2]O[sub 3] layer thickness exceeds 16 Å. The nanostructure of the films was investigated by transmission electron microscopy. The coercivities and the average grain sizes of the films are dependent on the B[sub 2]O[sub 3] concentrations, with coercivities varying from 4 to 12 kOe, while average grain sizes vary from 4 to 17 nm. Strong perpendicular anisotropy, adjustable coercivity, and fine grain size suggest this nanocomposite system might have significant potential as recording media at extremely high areal density. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The magnetization reversal in graded anisotropy Co/Pt multilayers is studied by first order reversal curve (FORC) diagrams. The graded profile influences the nucleation field in thin films. In thicker films (above the threshold value for stripe domain formation), its effect is masked, as the...

    We have studied the magnetic anisotropy of nanometric CoFe2O4 (CFO) thin films grown on (100)SrTiO3 (STO) substrates. It has been found that epitaxial substrate-induced compressive strain makes the normal-to-film axis harder than the in-plane directions. In agreement with some previous reports,...
