Zhu Featured in EE Times Article

October 21, 2009

DSSC Director and ABB Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Jimmy Zhu was recently featured in an EE Times article about alternate paths for hard disk drives. Specifically, the article cited Zhu's work in microwave assisted magnetic recording, calling it a "technology seen as a dark horse in the race toward tomorrow's ultra-dense hard disk drives." The piece then goes on to discuss Zhu's progress toward developing a MAMR prototype, and how his technology fits into the ongoing debate about the hard disk technology shift expected to take place in the next few years.
