Correlation between the magnetic properties and the recording performance of magnetic recording surfaces is a subject under very active investigation by several researchers. In this paper we report the results of a study conducted in which each magnetic parameter and the thickness of a recording surface was varied independently, and their effect on recording performance was individually determined. The width at half the amplitude of the pulse readback from an isolated magnetization transition on a recording surface varies proportionally to the one-half power of the thickness, and inversely proportionally to the one-half power of the coercivity; it is essentially independent of the remanent magnetization of the recording surface for coercivities greater than 150 Oe, but become increasingly more dependent on the remanent magnetization for coercivities below 150 Oe. The pulse amplitude varies proportionally to the one-half power of the coercivity, the remanence, and the thickness of the recording surface.
