Paper Abstract

We have measured the polarization signal from erasure through laser induced magnetization reversal (under the influence of a bias magnetic field) by using the incident laser pulse to read while writing. The measurements depict the physics of TMO during laser induced heating. The data indicate that the writing mechanism may not be symmetric with bias field.
