IBM reports storage research breakthrough

IBM scientists say they have developed a new iron-platinum magnetic film technology that could eventually lead to desktop computers capable of storing trillions of Bytes of data.

Shouheng Sun of IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center in New York and his colleagues report the process involves combining chemicals to create a three-dimensional structures called a “nanocrystal superlattice”, with each crystal capable of holding a stable magnetic charge.

While the technology requires further development, researchers say iron-platinum magnetic film memory devices could store ten to 100 times the capacity of today’s hard drives.
