Rewritable magnetic patterning: think tiny Etch A Sketch

Cornell researchers, including Dan Ralph, the F.R. Newman Professor of Physics in the College of Arts & Sciences, have demonstrated a technique for writing, erasing and rewriting microscopic magnetic patterns onto a material – a concept tested by writing and erasing “Cornell” eight times onto the sample. This achievement will aid in the research of magnetism for ultrafast computer memory and other applications.
