A University of Maryland group consisting of ECE Professor Dr. Isaak Mayergoyz, ECE Research Associate Dr. Chun Tse, Laboratory for Physical Sciences Senior Engineer Dr. Charles Krafft, and Dr. Dragos I. Mircea has received U.S. patent number 7,005,849 for their invention, titled “System and method for high-speed massive magnetic imaging on a spin-stand.”

The invention provides a system and method for high-speed massive magnetic imaging on a spin-stand. The system includes a spin-stand system for driving a rotational spindle to which a magnetic hard disk is mounted. Whole tracks of hard disk data can be imaged through the process of "track-centering" and "track-following." An alignment algorithm is used to align the magnetically read data to compensate for the instability of the triggering signal.
