An experimental test bed for investigating the hybrid recording process and that allows for the precise visual alignment of the optical spot and magnetic head is described. Using this spin stand experiments have been performed on three types of hybrid recording where the critical bit dimensions are determined by using either, or both, the thermal and magnetic field profiles. By changing the relative alignment of the optical spot and magnetic head in the down track position four distinct types of marks unique to the hybrid recording process are observed.
