'Stuffed' nanotubes could enable high-density storage

Researchers here have succeeded in loading carbon nanotubes with magnetic materials, an advance that could enable the use of the tiny cylinders for making extremely high-density data storage devices. The Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper und Werkstoffforschung Dresden (IFW) said it was able to stuff nanotubes for the first time with iron, cobalt or nickel.
