Dramatic advances in the technology for storing and retrieving increasing amounts of information via magnetic media are being announced on almost a weekly basis by the world's leading data storage companies. Advanced thin film materials of ferromagnetic, antiferromagnetic and non-magnetic alloys are proving to be the keys to the success of this ongoing revolution in storage technologies. Praxair MRC is at the forefront of this technology by offering controlled, consistent and high quality targets used in manufacturing and for R&D.

The optical recording technology has also seen dramatic enhancements in the amount of information that can be stored with the advent of CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, and Mini Disks (MD's). PVD materials such as Al-Ti, phase change alloys, magneto optic materials, have significantly contributed to these advancements. Praxair MRC is one of the market leaders in the area of magneto-optic targets.
