A new type of integrated magnetic recording head has been developed. The head is made completely from thin films by vacuum deposition through a mask. This technology enables us to make many heads in one vacuum cycle. A special study has been carried out on the geometrical forms and on the anisotropic magnetic material. The demagnetizing fields require that we make magnetostatic coupling layers for each magnetic leg of the head. Also, the results indicate that the heads can be used for writing and reading.
