Abstract

Understanding the dynamic process of microwave-assisted magnetization reversal (MAMR) in a dipole-dipole coupled granular perpendicular medium is essential for its application to future magnetic storage devices. We experimentally investigated the magnetization reversal process in CoCrPt-SiO2 granular films in terms of the dependence of the switching field on the strength of an applied in-plane radio-frequency magnetic field. The reversal process changed from non-uniform rotation to uniform rotation when the frequency increased toward the ferromagnetic resonance frequency. In the resonant condition, the switching field agreed well with a model assuming uniform rotation of the magnetization in each grain. The agreement suggests that the decoherence of ferromagnetic resonance due to a dynamic dipolar field is weak in adequately exchange-coupled granular films with a saturation magnetization of 415 emu/cm3. This finding is significant for the development of the practical medium necessary for MAMR writing.
