5D nanostructured quartz glass optical memory could provide ‘unlimited’ data storage for a million years

“Superman memory crystal” recordings could survive the end of the human race University of Southampton and Eindhoven University of Technology.scientists have developed a new technology that could store vast quantities of information — 360 TB on a disc, about 100 times more than current disk drives — for more than a million years [1]. ‘Superman […]

Metamaterial absorbers for infrared inspection technologies

Plasmonic metamaterials are man-made substances whose structure can be manipulated to influence the way they interact with light. As such, metamaterials offer an attractive platform for sensing applications, including infrared (IR) absorption spectroscopy – a technique used to uncover details of the chemical make-up and structure of substances. Now, Atsushi Ishikawa at Okayama University and […]
