  journal={IEEE Transactions on Magnetics},
Simulations of recording on media with two and three distinct recording layers are presented. A high frequency field is used to select the layer on which data are recorded. Layer-selective recording was confirmed for two layer granular media with narrow distributions. For three layer media magnetostatic interactions between the layers led to a loss of selectivity in the bottom recording layer. Readout of data is possible by staggering transitions in different layers or by using a spin-torque… 
Optimization of Dual-Structure Recording Media for Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording
Selective recording on multiple structures may be possible with microwave-assisted magnetic recording. The number of parameters in even a dual-structure system is such that optimization is difficult.
