The arrays of the synthetic antiferromagnetic (SyAF) patterned bits were fabricated with micron to submicron sizes and different aspect ratios. Magnetization switching field and magnetic domain structure were also investigated using magneto-optical Kerr effect and magnetic force microscopy (MFM), respectively. The size-independent switching field demonstrates the predominance of the SyAF for spintronics devices.
