From Google to Facebook to the laboratory, humanity is collecting data faster than conventional storage system (i.e., disks) can store it and far, far faster than those systems can analyze it. The Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory (NVSL) studies the solid-state, non-volatile memories that can provide the performance we need to convert that data into insights and enable the applications that will reshape the world, enrich our lives, and extend our understanding of everything from social networks to the origins of life.

The Center for Memory and Recording Research (CMRR) was founded in 1983 by a consortium of U.S. companies in the magnetic recording industry. The Center's mission is to advance the state-of-the-art in magnetic, optical, and solid-state storage technologies, and to produce highly trained graduate students and postdoctoral professionals. CMRR also serves as a catalyst for joint investigations amongst its industrial sponsors, government agencies, and the university.
