If the FeMn (Antiferro) layer is missing, both ferromagnetic layers will always spin in the same direction.
And, there will be no high or low resistance states.

GMR read-head working) 2.b GMR : Major differences are : Two ferromagnetic and spacer are all conductive materials. Current flows
parallel to layers. The spin orientation (either antiparallel or parallel) determines the scattering effects
