Entry from British & World English dictionary
The accidental transfer of recorded signals to adjacent layers in a reel of magnetic tape.
- We measured a 590 20 nm step, revealing that the deposition of the bottom electrodes creates steps on the top layer by print-through.
- Postprint, or post-echo, is when the print-through signal follows the recorded signal.
- Until 3M introduced the 900 Series of tapes, the rule was the better the tape is in terms of high signal-to noise ratios, the more potential there is for print-through.
