Conference Talk: Measurement and Characterization of Nonlinearities in Magnetic Tunnel JunctionsKate Auerbach
It has been observed that I-V curves of magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) exhibit nonlinear and asymmetric characteristics . Voltage-dependent nonlinearity and asymmetry in MTJ devices can then be fitted into a model ...Read More

The parasitic capacitance of the reader affects performance through signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in single readers and through crosstalk in dual 2-D magnetic recording readers. In a single reader, the majority of the capacitance is not from shield-to-shield capacitance but instead from lead-to-shield capacitance. The low-pass filtering of the reader circuit leads to an equalized SNR that depends on the parasitic capacitance. In a dual reader, the capacitance between the outer shields must be considered in addition to the capacitance between the inner shields in order to model accurately the crosstalk. Finite-element electromagnetic models and lumped element circuit models are validated with RF experiments on real heads.
