New Process Coats Computer Hard Drives With Diamond Armor

Summary:
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab researchers have devised a method of magnetically filtering plasmas produced by cathodic-arc deposition, allowing the deposition of 85% diamond-like carbon films less than 10 nanometers thick. This "diamond armor" allows closer contact between computer hard disks and sliders (reader heads), promising greater data density.

BERKELEY, CA -- With help from Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers, the storage capacity of your computer's hard drive is about to advance dramatically.
