Futuristic High-Density Molecular Memory Chip Unveiled

Abstract:
Researchers announced that they have constructed a memory circuit from molecules and nanometer-size wires that is as dense as what manufacturers expect to be building in 2020. The circuit, which stores 0s and 1s by switching clusters of molecules between two states, contains 160,000 bits jammed together at a density of 1011 bits per square centimeter. Conventional microchips are at least ten times less dense.
