Multifunctional testing instrument helps improve production of laser-heated hard disk drives with enhanced storage capacities

8 noviembre 2014

Today»s hard disk drives can hold terabytes of digital data, but manufacturers are having trouble squeezing more storage capacity into these devices using conventional procedures. Now, a new technique that promises to solve this impasse — heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) — can be integrated more efficiently into future hard drives thanks to an analytical tool.
