Within these three broad application segments, several specific applications stand out; chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP) was the largest market for nanoparticles in 2006, followed by magnetic recording media and multi-layer ceramic capacitors.
Disk and tape technologies rely on magnetic recording techniques that are inherently reversible or corruptible.
These results should enable magnetic recording disc manufacturers to prepare more reliable and controlled devices since now they know what magnetic features to control and how to examine them.
Our deep understanding of the complex physical phenomena of how the AFC media works enabled us to be first in the industry to ship AFC media in products, and we're working to extend this technology to perform magnetic recording at 100 gigabits per square inch and beyond.
Eventually, carbide nanorods--rods on the nanometer scale--may serve as sensors, magnetic recording heads, or a component of superconducting materials that could raise their current-carrying capacity, Lieber says.
