Abstract

In this study, we examine the effects of CrMn/NiAI and Cr/NiAl underlayer structures on the crystalline texture and microstructure of CoCrPt magnetic films using x-ray and electron diffraction. The former underlayer structure was found to induce better CoCrPt (1010) texture. The stress in the CoCrPt layer was measured. The effective in-plane anisotropy energy densities of the CoCrPt films on the above two underlayers were also measured by using out-of-plane torque and Miyajima methods and the result was consistent with the texture analysis.
