Abstract

See full text

A magnetic recording medium has a protective layer made of high hardness carbon synthesized under a low-temperature and a low-pressure by blowing hydrocarbon gas plasma onto a magnetic recording layer. The resistance thereof is large, and therefore, high density magnetic recording can be realized in a magnetic recording system wherein the magnetic head contacts the magnetic recording medium. Durability of the magnetic recording medium is substantially improved.
