The authors have fabricated ideally ordered alumina nanohole patterned disk media via anodic oxidation and nanoimprint lithography with a thermoplastic resist. The ordered arrays of alumina nanoholes with 100 nm pitch, filled with Co by electrodeposition, were created over a macroscopically large area on a hard-disk substrate using these industrially applicable nanofabrication technologies. Stable flight of a perpendicular magnetic head above the media and perpendicular magnetic anisotropy of the Co nanopillars enable high-speed dynamic magnetic recording and playback. Dynamic periodic signals that matched the nanopillar periodicity were clearly observed after writing bit patterns, showing alternate reversal of magnetization of the nanopillars.
