For the production of nano inscribed nickel wafers or plates, the
archival data is first submitted by the customer, organized
sequentially or indexed in a manner determined by the customer. After
file conversion and other preparation for NanoRosetta processing, the
documents or other data is then recorded onto a glass wafer by
modulating a laser beam in a spiral or concentric manner using a polar
raster direct laser etch. A “father” nickel master is made from this
inscribed glass wafer and intermediate “mother” and final ”son”
electroforms in nickel can then be generated from this nickel “father”
master wafer. Polymer copies can also be provided in lieu of nickel
“sons.” Analog and digital data, or both on the same wafer, can be
archived. The general process similar to the Glass
Masteirng and Electroforming steps for CD & DVD production.
adopt NanoRosetta for permanent archival preservation?
- Nickel has a much longer life span than microfilm, up to
thousands of years
- Nickel is resistant to high temperatures, water damage, and
electromagnetic disruption, eliminating the need for expensive control
of temperature and humidity
- No need for future migration of digital data, as long as a
microscope is available
- High speed recording of analog data, preserving more
documents in a much shorter time
- High density, reducing precious storage space.
Can I have my own files archived using NampRosetta Engraving Technology?
