Paper Abstract

Bit Patterned Media (BPM) is essential of HDD media areal density increase, which will be combined with heatassisted magnetic recording (HAMR) eventually for thermal diffusion prevention. 1Tbit/inch2 areal density is the first demonstration target, which is 25nm pitch hole array, for the BPM development. Nano-Imprinting Lithography (NIL) is indispensable too, so molds as well, for the BPM large-scale production for throughput. At the beginning, 52nm pitch and below was successfully made on quartz master-mold. However, by our comprehensive development and improvement in material and process, we successfully fabricate 25nm pitch master-mold by EB Lithography, 25nm pitch working-replica by Nano-Imprinting Lithography as well.
