Purdue's self-assembled 'nanorings' could boost computer memory

Abstract:
Recent nanotechnology research at Purdue University could pave the way toward faster computer memories and higher density magnetic data storage, all with an affordable price tag. Just like the electronics industry, the data storage industry is on the move toward nanoscale. By shrinking components to below 1/1,000th the width of a human hair, manufacturers could make faster computer chips with more firepower per square inch. However, the technology for making devices in that size range is still being developed, and the smaller the components get, the more expensive they are to produce.
