The lead scientists of a Japanese research team said on Monday that they have found a material that could be used to make a lower-price super disc with data storage capacity thousands of times greater than a DVD. According to Shin-ichi Ohkoshi, chemistry professor at the University of Tokyo, the material transforms from a black-color metal state that conducts electricity into a brown semiconductor when hit by light. The material can switch back and forth between the metal and semiconductor...

In what could be the final nail in the coffin for the floppy disk, Sony has announced that it will cease production and sales of the decades-old storage medium in March 2011. In most parts of the world, where it had long been replaced by the likes of the CD-ROM and the USB drive, disk sales had already been halted. However, in Japan, Sony reported sales of 12 million floppies last year at a cost of about $6 per 10-pack. That will come to an end next year, however, on the 30th anniversary of...

U.S. scientists have found a way to build a flexible memory component that might lead to electronic memory chips that can bend and twist. National Institute of Standards and Technology researchers led by Nadine Gergel-Hackett said the device is promising, not only because of its potential applications in medicine and other fields, but because it also appears to possess the characteristics of a memristor -- a component theorized in 1971 as a fourth fundamental circuit element along with the...

When it comes to data storage, density and durability have always moved in opposite directions - the greater the density the shorter the durability. For example, information carved in stone is not dense but can last thousands of years, whereas today's silicon memory chips can hold their information for only a few decades. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have smashed this...
