The authors have developed high-energy Co-Cr thin-film perpendicular recording media for rigid disks. They obtained high perpendicular coercivity (Hc⊥) exceeding 2000 Oe with Co-Cr films sputtered on glass disks. They examined recording characteristics obtained with double-layered media and single-pole heads. Readout voltages were proportional to Hc⊥ up to 2000 Oe and not dependent on saturation magnetization. The authors explain the experimental results using the hysteresis curve of the Co-Cr film and the permeance factor determined by the magnetic reluctance of the head and medium. Using a magnetic circuit model, they clarify the effect of the difference in the operating point on the hysteresis curves of rigid- and flexible-disk systems
