One of my major tasks this year was running the Almaden Institute (my manager was the chair of the conference).

We had several journalists visit, and EE Times Rick Merritt just posted his online article and slideshow about his visit.

Good pictures of my lab and he mostly got it right.

BTW, if you are at Convolution this weekend, I'll be giving a talk about our work at 4pm on Saturday afternoon!

Last August the BBC visited and shot lots of video in my lab.

They've chosen to use a chunk of it to go along with today's press release!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7341031.stm

Note that while the video caption mentions me, the article is about the two papers by my group published in Science magazine today. They cut out all the parts where I talk about Dr. Parkin (the brilliant head of our team) and the rest of the group, and focussed on the shiny machinery.

Our group has two papers being published in Science Magazine tomorrow, so today is press release day...

Including this video:



The animated section in the middle, demonstrating how racetrack works is my work, and that part of the script, too.

If we weren't actually inventing new stuff at work all the time, I'd worry my fifteen minutes had run out long ago...


Robert Scoble visited Almaden Research Center yesterday, and while they were setting up to use our lab as a setting for an interview with the lab Director Mark Dean, he ran around with his small camera doing impromptu interviews with those of us there.

So here you go, live on the Internet in atrocious resolution:



I manage to neither look nor sound like a complete idiot, so I'm not complaining.

I only just found this article; it's based on a visit to the lab by the BBC on October 20.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7085077.stm

I think they actually got the quotes right.

The New York Times has published an article about our work and about my inimitable manager, Dr. Stuart Parkin.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/11/technology/11storage.html?th&emc=th

I've got a mention by name in there, too.

ETA: Mr Markoff does a pretty good job of describing our racetrack project, but is off slightly: what he describes as working to "...use electric current to slide infinitesimally small magnets up and down along each of the wires to be read and written as digital ones and zeros."
is actually about moving a magnetic pattern (technically, a patterned series of magnetic domain walls) along a magnetic nanowire by using spin-polarized electric current.

I'll be speaking at the O'Reilly Media Emergent Technology Conference in San Diego on Wednesday, March 28.

You can see me on the speakers listing here.

Of course, this will entail flying down Wednesday morning, flying back Wednesday night so I can repack and catch a flight to St. Louis for CC25 in the morning.

I'm mentioned in an article on the Bloomberg news service...
Nanotech Lures Bankers, VCs With Promise of $1 Trillion Market

For those of you who haven't heard me talk about our research, let me be clear: I did not talk about silk screening atoms onto tee-shirts

I did describe our thin film deposition techniques as rather like "airbrushing with atoms" (that's a stock phrase I use in my talks, because the image it brings to mind in the audience is very clear), and I often describe our shadow-masking technique as rather like doing said painting through a stencil. I believe those two images were conflated together into the "silk screening" reference the reporter makes. Anyways, there's my name in print again. Should boost my Google hits some more ;-)
