Results showed that in the initial stage of film growth, the Co72Pt28 film was continuous and followed a dome-shaped structure with increasing film thickness. When the film thickness further increased above a certain critical value, the film growth acquired an inverted frustum shape structure and increased the intergranular magnetic interaction. The magnetization reversal mechanism showed a strong dependence on microstructures. The magnetization reversal followed the domain wall motion behaviour when the film was continuous and deviated towards the Stoner-Wohlfarth (S-W) model in the dome-shaped regime. A further deviation away from the S-W model was observed, when the film acquired an inverted frustum shape structure in order to minimize the surface energy. © 2009 IOP Publishing Ltd.||Source Title:||Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/86541||ISSN:||00223727||DOI:||10.1088/0022-3727/42/1/015009|
