Magnetization transitions in perpendicular magnetic recording have been calculated from measured replay pulses by a deconvolution algorithm using an analytical expression for the field of a probe head (PH). The transitions appear to be assymmetric whereby a pronounced magnetization peak occurs whose shape depends on the medium coercivity. For the experiments double layer media with double sided probe heads have been used. For the deconvolution only perpendicular head field and medium magnetization components are considered.
