However, researchers believe the technology will begin losing its ability to maintain data integrity at areal densities much beyond 120 gigabits per square inch, at which time perpendicular recording will become the dominant magnetic recording
Compared with the conventional technology that stores magnetic data on a horizontal plane of the HD media, the latest technology of SDK enables vertical magnetic recording
NanoCAP particles are also well suited for vertical magnetic recording
in future recording methods.

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.
is clearly the dominant recording technology today and for the foreseeable future.
NIST scientists induced rapid, near 90[degrees] rotations of the magnetization of Ni-Fe films in a geometry similar to that of the ferromagnetic cores of magnetic recording
This research may even have applications in magnetic recording
, he notes.
