Exchange coupled composite (ECC) media has been shown to possess several major advantages relative to conventional perpendicular media, including a reduction in the switching field of approximately a factor two for the same thermal stability and greater insensitivity to easy axis distribution. In this paper, full magnetostatic interactions are included: this allows comparison between the behavior of multigrain thin films and that of isolated grains as presented earlier. Significant results… CONTINUE READING
