This is a method for RF sputter deposition of thin films of FeCoCr with magnetic properties suitable for magnetic recording media. The requirements for magnetic recording media are: (1) H(c), 300-500 oersteds; (2) film thickness, 200-400 angstroms; (3) 4PiM(s) > 14,000 gauss; (4) squareness ratio > 0.9; and (5) high corrosion resistance (high Cr content).
