  • Patent number: 10748559
    Abstract: A magnetic head includes a main pole, a trailing shield, a spin torque oscillator, and a buffer layer. The buffer layer is interposed between the main pole and the spin torque oscillator. The spin torque oscillator has first and second side surfaces. The first and second side surfaces respectively form first and second angles with respect to a direction perpendicular to a top surface of a substrate. The first and second angles each fall within a range of 0° to 10°. The buffer layer has third and fourth side surfaces. The third side surface includes a first inclined portion forming a third angle greater than the first angle. The fourth side surface includes a second inclined portion forming a fourth angle greater than the second angle.

  • Publication number: 20200000357
    Abstract: When a user uses a finger to press and hold a first candidate display area, the first candidate display area is enclosed in a selection frame (W1), a simple window (W10) is displayed, and analysis results relating to a first candidate segment waveform are displayed in this simple window (W10). Analysis results can therefore be confirmed without switching screens and, as a result, inspection results can be confirmed with fewer steps and an electrocardiographic waveform and analysis results therefor can be compared on the same screen.
