Physical characterization of lithium niobate thin films on silicon substrates
The structure and orientation of radio frequency sputtered lithium niobate (LiNbO$\sb3$) films on silicon substrates is determined using x-ray diffraction. The structure of the LiNbO$\sb3$ films is determined to be a strong ...
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. ...
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 ...
