100 TB HDDs and A New Spin on Storage
Magnetic technology for storage and memory is developing to meet the needs of future mass-storage markets even as flash-based technologies eat away at higher performance markets. You can find out more about the development of HDDs, flash memory and spin-based MRAM devices at the Storage Visions Conference, January 4 & 5, 2015 in Las Vegas, www.storagevisions.com.
Magnetic layers and chains combine to form three-dimensional magnetic framework
(Phys.org) —We are all familiar with ordinary magnets in the form of metallic rods, horseshoes, or bars. However, magnets do not necessarily have to be made of metals or metal oxides. Researchers have also been exploring molecular magnets made from purely organic compounds, or by combining organic components with metal ions. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Japanese researchers have now ...

Erie, PA – Eriez® announces the availability of a new brochure featuring the company’s Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separators (WHIMS). The eight-page piece is offered in both downloadable and printed format. As explained in the brochure, WHIMS are designed for high capacity, continuous removal or concentration of...
Researchers create and control spin waves for enhanced data processing
A team of NYU and University of Barcelona physicists has developed a method to control the movements occurring within magnetic materials, which are used to store and carry information. The breakthrough could simultaneously bolster information processing while reducing the energy necessary to do so.
Revealing the quantum geometry of the graphene lattice
Among the most revolutionary concepts of modern physics is that the laws of nature are inherently non-local. One striking manifestation of this non-locality was famously predicted by Aharonov and Bohm: a magnetic field confined to the interior of a solenoid can alter the behavior of electrons outside it, shifting the phase of their wave-like interference although they never directly encounter ...
Magnetic memory filmed in super slow motion
Researchers have used high-speed photography to film one of the candidates for the magnetic data storage devices of the future in action. The film was taken using an X-ray microscope and shows magnetic vortices being formed in ultrafast memory cells. The work provides a better understanding of the dynamics of magnetic storage materials. Magnetic memory cells are found in every computer hard drive.
