Design concepts are established for several high-resolution magnetic recording structures, and their application demonstrated. The conventional ring head is treated and two new devices are described. A probe-type unit is discussed which shows promise in high-density vertical magnetic recording. A wire-grid array is also advanced to outline a unique conceptual approach to the achievement of higher resolution.
