Magnetic tape heads use a multiplicity of highly ESD sensitive read sensors. With 36 or more sensors per head in a magnetic storage tape drive, a loss in a manufacturing environment of 1000 ppm per sensor is very costly. ESD damages caused by manufacturing processes, fixtures, material and faulty testers are investigated and reviewed. A new type of ESD(More)
The concept of self-healing, whereby materials such as polymers, composites and cementitious construction materials are able to sense damage or deterioration and regulate, adapt and repair themselves automatically, is applied here to natural and anthropogenic soil structures. Damage in such structures can be difficult to detect and monitor, and will have(More)
