Nanotube memory scheme is magnetic
Researchers from Texas A&M University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have designed a type of nanotube flash memory that has a potential capacity of 40 gigabits per square centimeter and 1,000 terabits per cubic centimeter.
A terabyte is 1,000 gigabits, or the contents of about 26 DVDs.
Each memory element is made from a pair of crossed carbon nanotubes filled with iron or embedded in a ferromagnetic medium.
