Storage device writes information atom-by-atom | BBC News

The quest for storage devices that pack more information into a smaller space has reached a new limit, with memory that writes information atom-by-atom.

Dutch scientists developed rewritable memory that stores information in the positions of individual chlorine atoms on a copper surface.

The information storage density is two to three orders of magnitude beyond current hard disk or flash technology.
