    Default Superman memory crystal

    The University Of Southampton have recently developed a new storage medium which is said to offer both long term data storage and outstanding data density. The new tech is said to resemble the ‘memory crystals’ shown in Superman films, so it has been given the nickname ‘Superman memory crystals’.

    Researchers at the University Of Southampton have created an extremely dense and durable memory that can hold 360TB of data on a single disc for ‘an indefinite amount of time’. The structure is made of glass and it can withstand temperatures up to 1,000 degrees celcius. The data is written to the special glass materials via a femtosecond laser which fires short, powerful bursts of light inside a dense three dimensional nanostructured glass.

    The data is stored within three separate layers of nanostructured dots which are separated by five micrometers. Each of these dots contains information in the form of the intensity and polarisation of the laser beam. There are five variables, the insensity, polarisation and three dimensions – so the researches are calling the technique ’5D data storage’
    The speed of writing is 12 kbit/sec although this could improve to around 8 mbit/sec if they use ferroelectric liquid crystals and finally to several Gbit/sec using magneto-optical spatial light modulation (MOSLM)..
