Data dots: Researchers at HGST created the pattern above, which contains “magnetic islands” for storing data, using an emerging technique called nanoimprinting.

Increased media density in HDDs.

Small, very small. That’s all you really need to know. But if you are interested in the limits of superparamagnetism then read on here:
