On Wednesday, July 29th, IEEE Xplore will undergo scheduled maintenance from 7:00-9:00 AM ET (11:00-13:00 UTC). During this time there may be intermittent impact on performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Thin magnetic films may be employed as storage elements of a sampling recorder for measuring transient signals. By writing into successive films with a given signal at known time intervals and then utilizing the magnetization transfer characteristics, i.e., readout voltage versus write current, a time-amplitude reconstruction of the signal can be obtained. This mode of operation for a coupled thin magnetic film configuration, along with the difficulties in nondestructively reading out the film, is discussed.
