Researchers have discovered a way to use shifts between 2D layers of metal that may prove more dense than silicon for use in storage. Any thoughts or opinions on this would be welcome. Could this lead to other changes in the semi/nanotech sector or just be another scientific curiosity?
A new type of data storage system could be denser, smaller, faster and more energy efficient than silicon chips. The new method involves encoding data in sliding stacks of two-dimensional layers of metals.
