FePt-C nanogranular films are coming close to the actual application as recording media for the next-generation high-density recording system, heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR). To optimize the L10-FePt nanogranular structure suitable for high-areal-density recording, various combinations of segregants and seed layer materials have been explored. In this chapter, we review recent investigations aiming at achieving the ideal nanogranular structure for HAMR media.
