A magnetic reproducing head which generates a signal voltage substantially proportional to the magnitude of the intercepted magnetic flux is commonly referred to as a flux-responsive or magneto-static head. The fundamental mode of operation, the different approaches to practical solutions, and the characteristic features of this type of head are described. The explanations are illustrated by a number of cases which have been either proposed or practically executed by various organizations and investigators. A bibliography is given, including brief abstracts of pertinent patents and other publications.
