Abstract: Hexagonal boron nitride ( h BN) has recently been investigated as a promising grain boundary material for the nanogranular structure of L1 0 -FePt based heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) media. In this study, we systematically investigated FePt- h BN granular thin films (7.5 nm) with various h BN concentrations, to provide a fundamental understanding of the effect of introducing h BN nanosheets in the medium film on its microstructure and magnetic properties. Following the optimization of the h BN concentrations, we demonstrated a method to fabricate a thicker recording layer while maintaining the desired nanogranular microstructure. We successfully fabricated the 16nm-thick FePt- h BN film with well-isolated columnar grains of diameter 6.4nm, grain aspect ratio 2.5, and decent magnetic properties ( H C⊥ =21.3 kOe, H C// =5 kOe).
