In magnetic bubble memory packages having a bias field HBsupplied by a Ba-ferrite permanent magnet structure, the magnitude of HBmay be appreciably altered after setting by transient exposure to externally applied magnetic fields Hextas much as 10 times smaller than the field used in setting HB. We examine this effect for a particular magnet design having a permalloy yoke, a gap of 0.270 inches, and a saturation fieldH_{sat} simeq 240Oe. We find that the magnitude of the effect depends upon the ratioH_{B}/H_{sat}and upon the procedure used in setting HB. After setting toH_{B} = 200Oe from saturation with a demagnetizing fieldH_{ext} = -1400Oe, a remagnetizing fieldH_{ext} simeq 1800Oe is required to increase HBby 1%. On the other hand, after setting toH_{B} = 100Oe withH_{ext} = -2300Oe, a remagnetizing fieldH_{ext} simeq 400Oe is sufficient to increase HBby 1%. Setting by demagnetizing from saturation yields superior stability to setting by magnetizing from the demagnetized state, and stability of the set magnet may be further improved by demagnetizing with a ringing (alternating) field. This behavior is explained with a simple model and its importance for magnet design is discussed.
