Magnetic Storage

In this original work, Patrick Maletinsky et. al demonstrate the successful fabrication of an NV scanning probe carved out of bulk diamond. The first Quantilever MX prototype is used to image logical bits on a magnetic hard drive prototype from Hitachi GST, revealing out-standing spatial resolution and straightforward quantitative analysis. The results mark the true beginning of reproducible scanning NV magnetometry.
