Tenders invited for Metal magnetic memory imaging system
Magnetic domains retain their magnetic memory due to communication between groups of neighbouring magnetised atoms.
The results could have major implications for magnetic memory storage.
Among the topics are oxidation induced copper coating on a steel surface, the influence of materials ratio on the hydration process of magnesium oxychloride cement, the effect of solute atoms on the thermal property of magnesium alloys, refining the grain of pure aluminum by inoculation and a rotating magnetic field, manufacturing aluminum foam without a thickening agent with melt foaming method and in compressive behavior, first-principles calculations of hydrogen isotope effects on uranium hydrides, and characterizing crack initiation life in ferromagnetic material by metal magnetic memory testing.
One possible application for a pulsed laser beam may be drilling holes in ferrite sheets, which are used as magnetic memory elements.
Currently, magnetic memory is based on a technology called spin-transfer torque (STT), which uses the magnetic property of electrons - referred to as spin - in addition to their charge.
Current magnetic memory devices, such as the hard drives in most computers, 'write' information into ferromagnetic materials by flipping the magnetic polarity of discrete areas of the storage medium to correspond with the 1 or 0 of a computer's binary code.
Scientists at IT giant IBM have created the world's smallest magnetic memory chip, which could lead to the build of smaller, faster and more energy-efficient devices.
They are used, for example, as magnetic storage cells in nonvolatile magnetic memory chips or as highly sensitive magnetic sensors to read out the data stored on hard disks.
Crocus Technology, a developer of magnetic memory, announced yesterday the signing of a joint technology development agreement and a patent license agreement with IT company IBM (NYSE:IBM).
Magnetic memory developer Crocus Technology announced on Wednesday a joint technology development agreement and a patent licence agreement with IBM (NYSE:IBM).
With its style of dignified thought units, Torn is like the poetic hadron accelerator of CERN (to which she refers in her book), creating collisions of motives and phrases on its magnetic memory field: some of the particles will be torn apart, others infused with hope.
