The 31st Magnetic Recording Conference

August 17-20, 2020





TMRC 2020

The 31st Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC 2020) will be held VIRTUALLY from August 17-20, 2020.

Organizers regret the inevitable impact on direct communication between conference participants. Every effort is being made to compensate for the missing face-to-face component by leveraging state-of-the-art online conferencing technology and best practices.

Registration for the virtual conference is now open! Click here for more information.

The digest book can be downloaded here.

The conference survey can be found here.


The focus of TMRC 2020 is Solid State Magnetic Memory and Recording Technologies for >3 Tbits/in2. Approximately 36 invited papers of the highest quality will be presented orally at the conference. What used to be the poster session will now be a contributed session to be presented in standard oral format. Presenters can choose either pre-recorded or real-time videoconferencing presentation. Presenters of both invited and contributed talks at TMRC 2020 are strongly encouraged to submit a paper for consideration for publication in IEEE Transactions on Magnetics.

The topics of interest include:

• Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR System, Head/Media and HDI)

• Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording (MAMR)

• Alternative Magnetic Recording Technologies (SMR, TDMR, HIMR, Heated-dot, Tape, All Optical Switching)

• Advanced Magnetic Recording for > 3 Tbits/in2 including Readers, Writers, Servo, Tribology, HDI, Signal Processing

• Spin Transfer Torque-Magnetic Random Access Memory (MTJ cell, MRAM chip, manufacturing and roadmap)

• MRAM & Magnetic Logic – New Physics & Materials (MRAM architecture, VC-MRAM, SOT-MRAM, TI & 2D materials)

• Fundamentals (Metrology, Tooling, Materials, Recording Physics)
