Magnetic recording creates complex nanoparticle patterns

Nanoscale force fields create new materials using magnetically-recorded “disks” as reprogrammable templates for assembling nanoparticles into macroscopic patterns

Researchers at the University of South Carolina are using magnetic recording not to store data but to create complex materials using individual nanoparticles as building blocks. Using a technique called Pattern Transfer Nanomanufacturing™, developed by PI Thomas M. Crawford, . . . → Read More: Magnetic recording creates complex nanoparticle patterns
