抄録

A technique based on torque magnetometry is proposed for precise determination of the uniaxial magnetic anisotropy constant, Ku of perpendicularly magnetized thin films, in particular for Ku larger than 106 J/m3, by electrical detection of the anomalous Hall effect and exact determination of the magnetic field direction. This technique can measure the Ku value of several-nanometer-thick polycrystalline films. Further, the Ku value of FePt-C granular films, which are expected to be useful for high-density magnetic recording media, is evaluated. The intrinsic Ku value of 4-nm-thick FePt-C thin films fabricated at 450 °C is approximately 3 MJ/m3 for carbon contents up to 34 vol % C.
