Magnetic recording on co-alloy perpendicular multilayers
Perpendicular recording has the potential to achieve high-density data storage. As the linear density approaches to the superparamagnetic limit, traditional longitudinal recording may give way to perpendicular recording. ...
Transverse thermal conductivity of thin dielectric films
Earlier work revealed that the transverse thermal conductivity of thin films of amorphous SiO$\sb2$ and $\rm Si\sb3N\sb4$ deposited on monocrystalline silicon decreased substantially when the film thickness was less than ...
Study of degradation in tunneling oxide thin films in EEPROM and FLASH EEPROM test stuctures
Degradation of the tunneling oxide film in EEPROM and FLASH memory test structures has been studied. Two models have been used to characterize the tunneling induced degradation of the oxide thin film. They are the effective ...
Reduced exchange coupling in perpendicular multilayers
The ideal magnetic switching mechanism for magnetic recording is isolated domain coherent rotation. However, in typical Pd/Co and Pt/Co multilayers with high coercivity, the dominant switching mechanism is domain wall ...
Longitudinal magnetic media with soft magnetic under-layers read with magneto-resistive heads
Keepered media refers to traditional magnetic media with the addition of a soft magnetic "keeper" layer adjacent to the recording layer. Numerous recent reports have shown performance improvements associated with keepered ...
