Giant magnetoresistance (GMR). Nobel prize in physics 2007.

 

Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR).The Nobel Prize in Physics 2007/. A new phenomenon- giant magnetoresistance (GMR) wich has been found in magnetic multilayers is described. This effect is achieved due to particularities of scattering of spin-polarized current carriers in heterogenic magnetic structures. A promising application of high sensitive heads with a GMR read heads is considered.
