Crystallographically oriented, thin magnetic films are shown, from theory, to possess switching characteristics ideally suited for use in a noncoincident-current word-organized memory. These switching characteristics are derived from the theoretical critical curves for rotational single-domain switching for materials with biaxial or mixed biaxial and uniaxial anisotropy. The effect of domain wall motion and incomplete switching are discussed, and some preliminary experimental results are… 
High‐Order Anisotropies in Uniaxial Magnetic Films
The coupling of uniaxial ferromagnets whose easy directions are not parallel is studied. It is shown that field‐dependent effective high‐order anisotropies may be produced, and that as the coupling
Biaxial anisotropy for memory applications
This paper discusses the behaviour of pure biaxial and mixed uniaxial and biaxial films and its application for design of memories. Experimental results of a special type of NDRO system utilizing a
Magnetization reversal in films with biaxial anisotropy
Two models of magnetization reversal for the case of films with biaxial anisotropy are considered: 1 ) the coherent rotation model of Stoner and Wohlfarth (S-W) and 2) the noncoherent or wall-motion
Shape-induced biaxial anisotropy in thin magnectic films
Measurements taken in the presence of an orienting field were made on four-pointed star-shaped films etched from planar uniaxial films. These yielded large biaxial anisotropy terms. In analyzing the
