For a recently proposed perpendicular recording system, a composite anisotropy medium has been developed to improve the recording sensitivity of the perpendicular recording head. The medium is composed of a Fe-Ni soft magnetic film and a Co-Cr perpendicular anisotropy film, which are successively deposited on a base by an r. f. sputtering. By using the new double layer medium, an extremely high recording sensitivity could be obtained, compared with the single layer Co-Cr medium. The recording current needed to saturate the double layer film decreased to one-tenth of that for the single layer Co-Cr film. Although the Fe-Ni layer was soft magnetic material, neither deterioration of the frequency response nor peak shift was observed for the double layer film. The reproduction with a perpendicular head was also investigated, and a high output voltage and a high signal-to-noise ratio were obtained.
