We propose a quantitative analysis using perpendicular torquemetry to evaluate the thickness of the initial layer which consists of nanocrystalline grains, whose c axes are three-dimensionally randomly oriented, and the intrinsic magnetocrystalline anisotropy of the columnar grains with its c plane parallel to the film plane for CoCr-based perpendicular thin-film media. By applying this analysis to CoNiCrTa, CoCrPtTa, and CoCrPtB media, we found that the initial layer can be completely removed in the CoCrPtB medium epitaxially grown on an hcp-structured Co[sub 60]Cr[sub 40] intermediate layer. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

    The suitability of the 91–1,094 keV γγ-cascade in 172Lu(172Yb) for perturbed angular correlation studies has been demonstrated several decades ago. In comparison with widely used probe nuclei like 111In or 181Hf its quadrupole moment and anisotropy coefficient are quite large and...

    Polymers with long spacers often exhibit very low range of mesophase stability. The mesophase region must be wider enough in order to utilize their anisotropic nature during processing. For this purpose, the linking group, ie. the ester linkage, has been slightly modified by introducing a small...

    We model the coherent energy transfer of an electronic excitation within covalently linked aromatic homodimers from first-principles. Our results shed light on whether commonly used models of the bath calculated via detailed electronic structure calculations can reproduce the key dynamics. For...
