The microscopic structures and the surface morphology are studied by a transmission electron microscope and an atomic force microscope. The crystallographic properties are studied by an x-ray diffractometer. Our observation shows that high biasing is at work to favour the formation of low-energy hexagonal close packed (0 0 2) planes, resulting in high crystallinity of Ru. Addition of oxide to the Ru intermediate layer leads to an increase in grain segregation, which results in a small grain diameter, but broad standard deviation and large surface roughness. Utilization of a bias voltage on the Ru oxide intermediate layer successfully improves the crystal texture of CoCrPt : SiO2 and induces high Hc, a narrow intrinsic switching field distribution and low Hcr45/Hcr0, while maintaining isolated grains and small grain size. © 2013 IOP Publishing Ltd.||Source Title:||Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/86449||ISSN:||00223727||DOI:||10.1088/0022-3727/46/18/185001|
