Working in close collaboration with our industrial affiliates we are developing the fundamental underpinnings of information storage technologies as well as helping to create new technologies for information storage.

Our topics of research include:


Our research facilities are housed in Roberts Engineering Hall and are equipped to measure material properties, device characteristics and system performance.


The DSSC and its affiliates hold a number of patents in the field. Browse our list and learn more about our patent evaluation process.


The DSSC develops software packages for internal use, but also makes them available to member companies. See the current list of software that is available to our sponsors and instructions for getting access.
