Evaluating the reading sensitivity of a new thermomechanical data-storage technique

Evaluating the reading sensitivity of a new thermomechanical data-storage technique Heat transfer in a thermomechanical probe operated in a noble gas is studied by computer simulation in the collisionless approximation. The study is motivated by the fact that heat transfer in the gaseous environment becomes the main factor affecting the data-reading sensitivity as the feature sizes of thermomechanical probes used in data-storage systems approach the mean free path in the gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. A mathematical model is constructed and implemented in software. This is employed to run a computer simulation with the aim of evaluating the data-reading sensitivity in the cases of helium, neon, and argon. It is shown that operation in helium provides a significant increase in sensitivity. It is found that the probe concerned should continue to work with adequate sensitivity as its feature sizes are decreased until a level is reached somewhat lower than the mean free path in the gas. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Microelectronics Springer Journals

Abstract

Heat transfer in a thermomechanical probe operated in a noble gas is studied by computer simulation in the collisionless approximation. The study is motivated by the fact that heat transfer in the gaseous environment becomes the main factor affecting the data-reading sensitivity as the feature sizes of thermomechanical probes used in data-storage systems approach the mean free path in the gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. A mathematical model is constructed and implemented in software. This is employed to run a computer simulation with the aim of evaluating the data-reading sensitivity in the cases of helium, neon, and argon. It is shown that operation in helium provides a significant increase in sensitivity. It is found that the probe concerned should continue to work with adequate sensitivity as its feature sizes are decreased until a level is reached somewhat lower than the mean free path in the gas.
