An approach has been developed to determine the thermal stability factor (KuV*/kBT), switching volume (V*), anisotropy (Ku), and dynamic coercivity (HC) in one set of "moment-decay measurements." The experimental results for three sets of media films, the CoCrPt: C and CoCrPt: SiO2 granular films and CoCrTaPt commercial hard disks, are reported. This approach offers faster measurements and reproducible data.
