Abstract:We present our results on the development of magnetic sensors for application in magnetic probe recording. Successful writing experiments on a magnetic medium with perpendicular anisotropy show that magnetic domains of 130 nm can be reversed in a heat-assisted process. For reading purposes we propose a magnetoresistive sensor. The optimization of the shape of the sensor was performed using micromagnetic simulations with the requirement that the sensor has to be capable of both read and write operations. At this stage, the experimental realization of the sensor was carried out at a wafer-base level. The fabrication technique consists of a combination of optical lithography and focused ion beam etching.
