Capture of Nanomagnetic 'Fingerprints' a Boost for Next-generation Information Storage Media
January 28, 2009
A technique of capturing the magnetic "fingerprints" of magnetic nanostructures--even when they are buried within the boards and junctions of an electronic device--has been developed by a team of researchers at the University of California, Davis. The technique should serve as a valuable tool in the development of next-generation storage and recording media by contributing to the understanding of how to encode information with nanomagnetic arrays.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2016, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $626 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
