In this paper we report on the magnetic properties of CoPtCr multi-layer thin film media. The results indicate that the multi-layer films show two types of switching behaviour due to the difference in the Cr underlayer and interlayer thicknesses. Interaction effects are found to be reduced as the single magnetic layer is divided into many layers.
