dc.description.abstractAlthough it is well-known that frequency-modulated waves are distorted by systems with non-uniform frequency response, this distortion is difficult to calculate for most systems. The nature of the head-to-tape spacing transfer function allows the development of a closed form solution for FM distortion. Three methods of processing the voltage off the playback head are considered. Integrating the voltage results in amplitude-frequency distortion, but no harmonic distortion. Taking the voltage either directly off the head or differentiating it give both amplitude-frequency distortion and harmonic distortion. Experiments have verified the theoretical results.
