In some magnetic magnetoresistive heads using nickel-iron (NiFe) ferrite, the shunt material consists of a titanium layer. Unfortunately, when the NiFe is deposited directly on the titanium, the titanium and NiFe layers tend to interdiffuse. problem can be avoided by forming a titanium dioxide layer at the interface between the NiFe and the titanium.
