Cool laser writes data in 20 trillionths of a second

Posted by in category: computing


European researchers have unveiled a memory storage device that writes data 1,000 times faster than today’s hard drives while producing little heat.

Andrzej Stupakiewicz from the University of Bialystok in Poland and colleagues used precisely tuned laser pulses to store information on garnet crystal at blistering speeds with very little heat.

The work was published in Nature.
