IEEE Workshops

IEEE Workshop on Next Generation Magnetic Recording Technologies

This workshop is a forum to discuss the current and future challenges facing magnetic data storage technologies. Its goals are to search for viable routes to extend conventional magnetic recording technologies beyond their perceived limits and to identify promising candidates that can suceed today's technologies when these fundamental limits are reached. Topics include:

  • High-throughput patterning at sub-10nm scale
  • Multilevel magnetic recording
  • Bit-patterned medium recording systems
  • Energy-assisted recording schemes

Invited speakers

  • Stanko Brankovic, University of Houston, Houston, TX - "Critical Process and Solution Parameters Design for Electrodeposition of 2.4 T CoFe Alloys at Nanoscale"
  • Sangita Kalarickal, Colorado State University, Ft. Collins, CO - " Tagging damping processes in magnetic thin films: Implications for future heads and media materials"
  • Sakhrat Khizroev, University of California, Riverside, CA - "Multilevel 3D Magnetic Recording"
  • Sara Majetich, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA - "X Current Switching Magnetic Recording"
