(001)-oriented FePt films with large perpendicular magnetic anisotropy have been obtained on a soft magnetic underlayer (SUL). A nanocrystalline Fe-Si-B-Nb-Cu alloy film has been chosen as SUL, showing the coercivity H c of less than 80 A/m after annealing at 400°C. It has been found that the crystal orientation and magnetic properties of FePt films are improved by the introduction of a MgO interlayer between FePt and Fe-Si-B-Nb-Cu. The strong (001) texture and the large coercivity of 565 kA/m have been obtained in the tri-layer structure of Fe-Si-B-Nb-Cu (200nm)/MgO (5 nm)/FePt (10nm).
