We have investigated the effect of extensive compositional change on the structure and magnetic properties of FePt sputtered films deposited at a substrate temperature of 300 °C. The Fe concentration in the FePt films was varied from 19 to 68 at. %. In the x-ray diffraction patterns, (001) and (003) superlattice peaks were observed at a Pt-rich composition range, indicating the formation of a L1[sub 0] ordered structure. A L1[sub 0] ordered Fe[sub 38]Pt[sub 62] film exhibited perpendicular magnetization with a large uniaxial magnetic anisotropy of K[sub u] = 1.8 × 10[sup 7] erg/cm³.

    A dynamic micromagnetic model of granular thin film magnetic recording media has been employed to study the reversal modes of longitudinal and perpendicular thin films. Different reversal modes can be produced by using vector applied fields which either rotate or are applied off axis. When axial...

    The activation volume of reversal v[sub act] is a critical parameter in the characterization of thin film media since it determines the smallest unit of a magnetic material that can be reversed in a single step and hence defines the minimum bit size. In the recent past, there have been reports...
