5D nanostructured quartz glass optical memory could provide ‘unlimited’ data storage for a million years
July 10, 2013
University of Southampton and Eindhoven University of Technology.scientists have developed a new technology that could store vast quantities of information — 360 TB on a disc, about 100 times more than current disk drives — for more than a million years .
