6. 20 presents the reverse situation – varying of the Hy component. When the magnetic field hy decreases from hy1 to hy2 there is a moment when hy reaches the critical value hyc. At this moment the direction of the magnetization suddenly changes. When the magnetic field again increases the change of resistance has another character – the full cycle of magnetization makes the hysteresis loop. 21). In this way “the magnetic history” of the thin film has been changed. Now the angle increases as the magnetic field Hx increases, but only to the critical value hxc.
To improve the quality of the permanent magnet layer the deposition of a Cr underlayer is recommended (Liao et al 1994, Smith et al 1990). 50 The methods of biasing the film using a hard magnetic layer. The first realizations of the hard biasing film concept were not fully satisfying. One of the first methods of producing high coercivity ␣Fe2O3 magnetic layer was the oxidation of permalloy film (Bajorek et al 1971). Also the hard magnetic film of magnetite Fe3O4 has been deposited (Bajorek and Thompson 1975).
Also the hard magnetic film of magnetite Fe3O4 has been deposited (Bajorek and Thompson 1975). These hard magnetic materials were inhomogeneous and their surface was not smooth enough. Therefore the short-wavelength roughness caused the increase of anisotropy dispersion of the permalloy film. The application of cobalt-based alloys obtained hard magnetic layers with the desired parameters. Various hard magnetic materials have been tested, for example CoCr (Bajorek and Hempstead 1979), SmCo (Dibbern 1989), CoIr (Kitada et al 1984), CoNiCr (Liao et al 1994) or CoZrMo (Ishiwata et al 1984).
