Hot Tip Boosts Disk Capacity

Abstract:
Scientists at IBM Research have demonstrated a relatively inexpensive way to use heat to make it easier to write magnetic patterns on such media. The technique could make it possible to store more than one terabit per square inch, according to the researchers. That's nearly 27 DVDs worth of information. The technique would also be relatively fast - recording speeds of more than one billion bits per second, or gigahertz, are possible, according to the researchers.
