The first optical memory element to be made from a single gallium nanoparticle could compete with DVD and hard disks.
Physicists in the UK have made the first optical memory element with information encoded in the structural phase of a single gallium nanoparticle. The new memory element is about the same size as bit cells in next-generation hard disks, but requires much less energy to switch from one state to another than current DVDs or DVRs.
