Technology Features & Specifications
The device comprises a unique “nanoplasmonic layer” having a heating side and a cooling side and also includes a cooling structure adjacent to the cooling side of the “layer”. The localization of these cooling structures is engineered for rapid cooling and focused cooling effects-minimizing any heating related performance loss in real life applications. The overall design of this novel device enables to remove heat from the layer effectively in a compact manner. This technology will play a crucial role in breaking the technical limits that are encountered in various products. For example, a successful integration of this technology with hard disc drives will extend the annual increase of data storage capacity at or above 40%, which has been slowing due to the super paramagnetic limit. A successful integration of this technology with hard disc drive heads and media will allow the hard disc drive to break the technical limits, and therefore, will allow the existence and growth of this important technology. There are even bigger markets that can utilize this technology, such as the semiconductor industry and solar cells. Since the offered technology is the first example providing localized cooling at the nanoscale, it becomes attractive for a number of emerging nanotechnology products.
This technology may serve the following: Semiconductor industry Software/hardware industries Energy and environment as use in near-field imaging applications Solar cells, nanolithography, optical data storage Heat assisted magnetic recording, light emitting devices Spectroscopy, medical applications, biochemical sensors Femtosecond pulse shaping, single molecule spectroscopy Single molecule fluorescence enhancement, and plasmonic waveguide
