Abstract

Thermal stability of amorphous TbFeCo monolayers and {TbFeCo/Pt} multilayers is studied by magnetic viscosity measurements M(t). Using, isothermal remanence measurements the relationship between the magnetization reversal process and its time dependence has been investigated. The non-linear evolution of magnetization with In(time) happens when the mechanism responsible for magnetization reversal process is mainly domain nucleation. On the other hand domain wall motion process induces a linear M(t) behavior. For multilayers with very small Pt thickness (samples with high square hysteresis loop), magnetization time decay can be described easily by a single energy barrier EB model. As Pt thickness increases, distribution of EB becomes wider leading to almost linear magnetization decay with In(time) as in longitudinal recording media. The activation volume is determined for these media and shows a strong correlation with reversing field, thus yielding variations of stability over a written bit.
