Ten billion nanotubes

US based Nantero claims to have developed an array of ten billion suspended nanotube junctions on a single silicon wafer that it plans to use as the basis for a nonvolatile memory device. 'The bit itself is not stored in the nanotube, but rather is stored as the position of the nanotube. Up is bit zero, down is bit one,' explains Greg Schmergel, CEO and Co-Founder of the company. Bits are switched between states through the application of electrical fields.
