Researchers' Work from CEA Saclay Focuses on Heavy Metals [Solution Epitaxial Growth of Cobalt Nanowires on Crystalline Substrates for Data Storage Densities beyond 1 Tbit/in(2)]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- A new study on Heavy Metals is now available. According to news reporting originating in Gif sur Yvette, France, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "The implementation of nano-objects in numerous emerging applications often demands their integration in macroscopic devices. Here we present the bottom-up epitaxial solution growth of high-density arrays of vertical 5 nm diameter single-crystalline metallic cobalt nanowires on wafer-scale crystalline metal surfaces."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from CEA Saclay, "The nanowires form regular hexagonal arrays on unpatterned metallic films. These hybrid heterostructures present an important perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and pave the way to a high density magnetic recording device, with capacities above 10 Terabits/in(2). This method bypasses the need of assembling and orientating free colloidal nanocrystals on surfaces."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Its generalization to other materials opens new perspectives toward many applications."
