lt;p>"The shuttle memory has application for archival data storage with information density as high as one trillion bits per square inch and thermodynamic stability in excess of one billion years," Zettl said in a statement.
We started out at 2,000 bits per square inch in areal density--28 tracks and 100 bits.
Current hard drives store magnetic data at about 20 billion bits per square inch, but the newly reported jump in resistance could lead to storage densities that surpass a trillion bits per square inch, Chopra claims.
That amounts to 1,003,300,000 bits per square inch -- too dense for reliable reading by conventional inductive heads, which detect data when magnetically stored bits passing underneath induce tiny electrical currents in them.
