Magneto-resistive Heads: Fundamentals and Applications
The intent of the book is to discuss the physics and engineering of magneto-resistive heads which are playing an extremely important role in the modern technology of hard disk drives. The book is comprehensive and self-contained. Most of the material is presented in a non-mathematical manner to make it more "digestible" for students and practical engineers. Each chapter concludes with a listing of the principle references in order to facilitate the reader's further study. The author is a well-recognised expert in the field and published The Foundations of Magnetic Recording with Academic Press in 1987.
