A magnetic bubble generator consisting of a Permalloy disk and a current conductor loop has been used recently in a mass memory design utilizing magnetic bubble technology. The bias field range in which the disk can hold the seed bubble is measured in this report as a function of of the rotating field frequency. Above a critical frequency fc, the bias field margins begin to decrease. The dependence of fcon disk size is obtained for disks with diameters from 16 μm up to 43 μm at rotating fields of 20 and 30 Oe. The separation between Permalloy disks and the garnet film is kept at 0.8 μm or 1.6 μm. Results show that at a fixed rotating field, a smaller disk is preferable at higher frequency for a magnetic bubble material with a given mobility. The critical frequency fcobtained is in good agreement with a theoretical calculation using the viscous damping model by Rossol et al. For frequencies below fc, the bias field margin on the disk is equal to that of the propagating channel and circuit failure due to the loss of the generator seed bubble can be eliminated.
