"What we've done, essentially, is to take a conventional MRI and miniaturize it," Yacoby said. "Functionally, it operates in the same way, but in doing that, we've had to change some of the compon"
"Much of what we see taking place or see evidence of having taken place looks like lava and sort of normal volcanism on Earth except it involves warm water" said Bruce Marsh, a geophysicist at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University

"In order to resolve this technical problem, energy assisted recording has been proposed in which, at the time of recording, supplemental energy is applied to a magnetic recording medium to lower effective coercive force. A recording system using a microwave magnetic field as a supplemental energy source is called microwave assisted magnetic recording (MAMR). The following references should be referred: J G Zhu and X Zhu, `Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording`, The Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC) 2007 Paper B6 (2007), and Y Wang and J G Zhu , `Media damping constant and performance characteristics in microwave assisted magnetic recording with circular ac field` JOURNAL of Applied Physics (2009)."
