Storage: Pushing the Physical Limits
report examines the current state of data storage technology, organizes
key issues and puts them in context, and succinctly explains how
the technology works.
Materials science and nanotechnology are paving the way for storage
media that will have huge capacities. Researchers have made great
progress toward new types of devices; the relentless drive for ever-smaller
bits has pushed chemists and physicists rather than electrical engineers
to the vanguard of data storage research.
The report includes an executive summary, a list of 13 developments
to look for as these cutting-edge technologies take shape, and a
section of 20 researchers to watch, including links to their Web
pages. It also includes a quick tour of 26 recent developments in
six areas and a section of 23 in-depth news stories from TRN.
The stories are organized into five categories: storage media, storage
technologies, memory technologies, optical storage, and advances
from the frontiers of science.
Making the Future reports contain live links, and can
be read on a computer, printed and archived.
