·         Researchers Awarded Funding to Expand Nano Work Being Done at UH Center, College News, December 2, 2009

In the second grant totaling $279,998, Litvinov is partnering with Weller and Stanko Brankovic, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. Together, they will further explore how the ingredients used to create the magnetic materials that help to store data in magnetic hard disks can be changed at the nanoscale. Using his electrochemical nanofabrication technique, Brankovic hopes to align the materials in a specific atom order to help magnetic bits used in these disks be more stable—a challenge currently hindering growth of the magnetic data storage industry to date. The stronger the magnetism of a material, he said, the more useful it is since this stronger magnetism allows the material to store data more easily.
