Paper Abstract

The influence of duration of laser radiation impulses on the mechanisms of thermomagnetic recording on thin amorphous films of alloys with perpendicular anisotropy is considered. Examples of these alloys are TbFe, DyFe, TbCo, and DyCo, which currently are under investigation for recording applications. For duration of impulses (tau) >= 10-7s the process of stable domain structures formation is considered under the inhomogeneous heating in the presence of weak external magnetic field. For (tau) -8s it is shown that at a slight heating of the exposed area large pressures are developed in the film. Optical recording with higher energy sensitivity than in the thermomagnetic method is realized in these films.
