Paper Abstract

As one of the most promising schemes for high density MO recording, a new media for magnetic multivalued recording has been proposed. By switching the external field on four levels, the quadri-valued signal was obtained. On the MMV media, field sensitivity is improved by controlling composition of PtCo capping layer coupled to TbFeCo. The external filed for recording four levels is reduced down to 350 Oe and direct overwriting capability is confirmed on 0.8micrometers mark length recording.
