The interactions in ternary and quaternary Co-based alloy thin films for longitudinal recording media, with different thickness, are studied. The analysis is performed through the measurement of the initial magnetization and ordinary hysteresis curves. The interactions result stronger in quaternary than in ternary alloy films and when the film thickness is smaller. These findings are discussed in relationship with the evolution of the magnetic switching, characterized by a tendency towards a more coherent rotation of the magnetization in single-domain grains of thinnest and quaternary films, owing to the complex structure of these films. The impact of this evolution on the thermal stability of the magnetic properties is also discussed.

Abstract

The interactions in ternary and quaternary Co-based alloy thin films for longitudinal recording media, with different thickness, are studied. The analysis is performed through the measurement of the initial magnetization and ordinary hysteresis curves. The interactions result stronger in quaternary than in ternary alloy films and when the film thickness is smaller. These findings are discussed in relationship with the evolution of the magnetic switching, characterized by a tendency towards a more coherent rotation of the magnetization in single-domain grains of thinnest and quaternary films, owing to the complex structure of these films. The impact of this evolution on the thermal stability of the magnetic properties is also discussed.
