Diamond-Like-Carbon Coating for Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR)
Brief DescriptionNew materials to make advanced recording technology possibleInventorRobert Carpick (http://carpick.seas.upenn.edu/)ProblemHeat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) could provide hard drive storage densities in the TB/in^2 range, as compared to today’s GB/in^2 capability. HAMR operates by heating the disk with a laser, which mom...

Simultaneous Imaging and Friction Measurement with In-situ Tribometer
ProblemDifferent instruments are needed to study the interaction of contact surfaces at different length scales. Tribometers measure the coefficient of friction, but they cannot image the micro or nano contact area during a sliding test. Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) techniques can image surfaces at smaller scales, but they cannot provide the trib...

Platinum Silicide thin films with tailored properties
InventorDr. Rob Carpick ProblemPlatinum is highly conductive but it has poor mechanical properties and is not very durable when used in mechanical devices. In the emerging field of nanoelectromechanical (NEM) contact switches, reliability has been identified as a key concern, and to fully enable NEM switches, new materials are needed that can perf...
