The GMR of spin valve with specularly reflective layers was studied. The single specular spin valve was magnetically soft and its GMR value reached over 12%. It was found that the head with the double specular spin valve could be used for an areal density of 106.4 Gb/in2 in magnetic recording, with the help of advanced media and integration techniques. The specularity, thermal stability and magnetic and electrical properties of the spin valve were also discussed.
