Self-heating of GMR sensors is investigated experimentally and numerically. We measure the thermal conductivity of the read gap layers independently and model heat transfer at the air bearing surface using the results of molecular scale simulations. Temperature profiles obtained by simultaneous application of scanning probe and electrical resistance thermometry agree well with numerical simulation results
