Beyond Blu-ray
A material that undergoes a photoreversible transition from metal to semiconductor could lead the way to ultra-high density data storage, with 500 times the capacity of Blu-ray disks, according to research from Japan. Shin-ichi Ohkoshi and colleagues from the University of Tokyo have produced a material based on nanoparticles of titanium pentoxide. This material undergoes a transition close to room temperature, uses ultraviolet light, which is essential for high memory density, and only needs a lower input power to for the state to be sustainable.
