Micromagnetic Simulations of Magnetic Recording Media

  • Simon Greaves


In recent years the capacity of magnetic hard disk drives used for data storage has increased at annual rates of between 30% – 60%. Behind this rapid increase in areal density lies a constant process of innovation and technological improvement.
