The effects of anisotropy axes distribution on the properties of longitudinal recording media are simulated using the micromagnetic modeling. The angle between the anisotropy axis and the preferred direction is assumed to follow the Gaussian distribution. Hysteresis loops are simulated with the field applied in the preferred direction and perpendicular to it. Orientation ratios (OR) are calculated for different anisotropy distribution. OR (coercivity) increased from 1.4 to 79.2 when standard deviation of anisotropy distribution σ decreased from 0.7 to 0.05. The effect of the anisotropy distribution on the recording performance is evaluated, too. The results show that narrowing the anisotropy distribution will increase the OR and decrease the transition noise power and transition length. It was found that a critical point occurred at σ=0.15, below which the OR can be maintained at a sufficiently high value and yet the integrated noise power can be kept low. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
