Abstract

The results of the experimental study of CoX/Pd multilayer based recording layers for perpendicular recording media are presented. The perpendicular magnetic recording media with multilayer recording layers and high moment soft underlayers were deposited by magnetron sputtering. It is shown how a favorable microstructure of the multilayer films can be achieved by the use of the appropriate buffer layers. The effects of boron addition to the cobalt layer in a multilayer recording layer is described. The feasibility of the aging process that leads to the reduced exchange coupling in the multilayer recording layer, is demonstrated. It is shown that boron addition to the cobalt layer accelerates the aging process.
