Tiny Molecule Could Shrink Computers, Phones, iPods
Chemists at Glasgow University have engineered a tiny molecule which can store huge amounts of data in very small spaces, meaning the physical size of digital memory cards and hard drives could shrink dramatically in the next few years.
Lead researcher Dr. Lee Cronin told the Sunday Herald: "Data storage hits the wall at a certain point companies are spending billions cramming more memory into smaller space, but it can't go on forever with current technology. "What we have come up with is a molecule with the potential to pack in 10,000 more 'storage units' into a given area than is currently possible."
