A new system for high-density data storage can store around 29 gigabits of information per square inch — nearly three times the amount on a state-of-the-art commercial DVD. And the researchers who have developed it think that further increases in storage density of perhaps as much as 100-fold might be possible.
Gary Gibson of the Hewlett-Packard Laboratories in Palo Alto, California, and colleagues have devised a new 'phase-change' recording medium1, in which bits of information are stored as regions of material with a different phase — a different atomic-scale structure — from the surrounding material. Phase-change data storage is already used in rewritable compact disks and DVDs for optical memory technology, and it is being developed as a potential rival to flash memory for semiconductor electronic devices.
