The characteristics of spatial and temporal field distributions are presented for wrap-around-shielded perpendicular magnetic recording writers. Micromagnetic modeling simulations are conducted to study the effects of shield thickness and the magnetization on the shield-related side field. An improvement of side field is found with the thicker shield thickness and higher saturation magnetization. The maximum side field is spatially and time dependent during the dynamic writing process. The side field reaches the maximum around the transitions, where the write field from the main pole is at the minimum. In addition, the write current rise-time effect on the side field is investigated.
