The CoCrPt/Ti/NiP films for perpendicular magnetic recording were studied using X-ray scattering and anomalous X-ray scattering. When the NiP seed layer was used, the long range order of the texture peak of the magnetic film decreased and less Co was associated with this Bragg order. The structural results were consistent with the observed increased coercivity and decreased magnetization due to the increased magnetic grain isolation caused by the presence of NiP seed layer.
