GMR Heads oral history panel at the Computer History Museum

It celebrated the introduction of giant magnetoresistance (GMR) heads in hard disk drives in 1997, which has been a key is sustaining the growth rate of areal density in magnetic recording. The panel featured four colleagues who developed the spin-valve design at IBM in the early 1990’s: Virgil Speriosu, Bruce Gurney, Bernard Dieny from Spintec, and Mustafa Pinarbasi.
