A novel method for pinning the magnetic domain in artificially pinning hole has been developed for magneto-optical (MO) thin film material Dyx(FeCo)1-x. The artificially pinning holes were fabricated using electron-beam lithography. Hole arrays with square, star, and circle shapes had been made in this study. However, the nanometer scale magnetic domains could be formed inside the hole arrays if the pinning hole geometry was not well defined, and the pinning domain may induce media noise.
