In this paper, a new type of perpendicular magnetic media which we have termed percolated perpendicular media is discussed. We present the method we used to fabricate the media as well as an energetic rationale for the driving force to produce the desired microstructure. The microstructures of samples with various amounts of oxide material are presented and the optimum one for our investigation is presented. We also present some preliminary drag test data that can be used to evaluate the recording properties of this media
