The intrinsic SFD is measured to be ∼911% of the remanence coercivity (Hcr), which contributes only ∼2050% of the total SFD broadening (∼2341% of Hcr). High resolution MFM observations clearly showed the influence of surrounding islands on the switching behaviour and switching fields of individual bit islands, resulting in significant contributions in SFD broadening due to non-intrinsic dipolar interactions. It was further observed that single magnetic islands could be switched within a very narrow switching field range as small as 4 Oe, which indicates very sharp and uniform switching for each individual island of BPM. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
