Thermally excited magnetic noise (mag-noise) has gradually become a major concern in magnetic tunnel junction sensors. By conducting micromagnetic simulation, the spatial distribution of thermal mag-noise in the free layer (FL) was obtained under various hard bias (HB) field and applied field. It was demonstrated that the edges are the main contributor of thermal mag-noise in the FL. This result could be explained by the nonuniform distribution of the stiffness field around the edges. It was also found that both HB field and applied field could suppress the thermal mag-noise in edges. A relatively high applied field will decrease the influence of HB field on mag-noise in the edges.
