Nanotechnology could offer jolt to memory chips

Abstract:
Michael Kozicki wants to make sure people can have all of their information at their fingertips any time, anywhere.

The technology he is working on may do just that, allowing users to carry a terabyte of data in the palm of their hand. That's 1,000 gigabytes, four to eight times the capacity of a common personal computer hard drive.

As founder, chairman and chief technology officer of Scottsdale-based Axon Technologies Corp., Kozicki is pursuing a form of nanotechnology that could become the successor to the ubiquitous flash memory, which is available in everything from cell phones and memory sticks to laptop computers and iPods.

His device is called programmable metallization cell memory, or PMC. Like flash memory, it is nonvolatile, which means it can hold data even when it is not hooked up to a power source.
