CMRR supports a program of leading-edge, interdisciplinary research, covering the broad range of scientific and engineering areas fundamental to information storage technology and systems. Contributing to these research activities are faculty, researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students affiliated with UCSD Engineering, Physics, Nanoengineering, and the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. The latter studies the business aspects of the data storage industry, complementing our technology studies and houses the Information Storage Industry Center (ISIC).
The center supports five endowed professorial chairs. Research programs address fundamental problems in nanoscale storage technology, including:
