It’s a small world for Dr. David Sellmyer. He works with magnetic materials measured in billionths of a meter. This technology enables data storage more than 100 times greater than current hard disks. It also has applications for advanced computers, handheld electronic devices, and new medical technologies.
Sellmyer and his team of researchers at the W.M. Keck Center for Mesospin and Quantum Information Systems and W.M. Keck Fast Dynamics Laboratory at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln conduct frontier research on mesospin structures. These extremely small structures range in size from single atomic spins to nanoscale magnetic dots and clusters and have great potential for future technological applications in information processing and storage.
