Data storage capacity is enhanced by mixing hard and soft magnetic materials

A computer hard disk uses a process called magnetic recording to store digital data. This involves applying a small field to switch the physical properties of grains of a magnetic material. The grains exist in one of two possible states, which represent the ‘1’s and ‘0’s of binary information.
