    Perpendicular magnetic recording was a long-awaited technology to break the areal density limit of the longitudinal recording system. Through the research on high squareness CoPtCrO/Ru recording media, we have established the intrinsic design concept of stable perpendicular magnetic recording in which the high nucleation field of perpendicular magnetic media supports the very stable magnetization ...

    Exchange coupled composite (ECC) media consisting of both magnetically hard and soft regions within the same grain have been proposed for 1 Tb/in2 perpendicular magnetic recording. Compared to conventional perpendicular media, a composite structure can effectively decrease the switching field of the media without a loss in thermal stability. This paper reviews the recent work on composi... View full abstract»

    Heat-assisted magnetic recording is a promising approach for enabling large increases in the storage density of hard disk drives. A laser is used to momentarily heat the recording area of the medium to reduce its coercivity below that of the applied magnetic field from the recording head. In such a system, the recording materials have a very high magnetic anisotropy, which is essential for the the... View full abstract»

    Scaling of the bit size in conventional magnetic recording media is becoming increasingly difficult due to the superparamagnetic limit. Innovations in magnetic recording technology are emerging to enable the continued growth in bit areal density. Thermal stability problems of conventional granular media can be greatly helped by patterning single domain magnetic islands for each magnetic bit. Fabri... View full abstract»

    This papers reviews the increasing role of NAND flash memory in storage architectures. NAND flash has enjoyed a phenomenal growth rate in storage capacities as well as a steady decline in pricing during the past few years. These developments have enabled NAND to enter and possibly change or displace some traditional storage architectures. However, besides cost, NAND flash memory has some reliabili...
