Magnetic Information Storage Technology: A Volume in the ELECTROMAGNETISM Series
This text explains how hard disk drives operate, how billions of bytes of digital information are stored and accessed, and where the technology is going. In particular, the book emphasizes the most fundamental principles of magnetic information storage, including in-depth knowledge of both magnetics and signal processing methods. Magnetic Information Storage Technology contains many graphic illustrations and an introduction of alternative storage technologies, such as optic disk recording, holographic recording, semiconductor flash memory, and magnetic random access memory.

Page v - Electromagnetism is a classical area of physics and engineering that still plays a very important role in the development of new technology. Electromagnetism often serves as a link between electrical engineers, material scientists, and applied physicists. This series presents volumes on those aspects of applied and theoretical electromagnetism that are becoming increasingly important in modern and rapidly development technology.
