Better Data Storage Using Nanotubes - News Item

Scientists from IBM Research in Zürich, Osaka Prefecture University in Japan, and the Japanese Nanotechnology Research Institute have made a development that brings the possibility of using multiwalled carbon nanotubes to make denser, more efficient data storage devices, a step closer.

The researchers have shown that multiwalled carbon nanotube tips can write data onto polymer film. Currently silicon is used but carbon nanotube tips can write more than 250 gigabytes per square inch per square inch. The nanotubes are also more power efficient.
