Data Storage

Submission + - Stanford's Quantum Hologram Sets Storage Record (stanford.edu)

eldavojohn writes: It's often assumed that representing data reaches a limit when you get to the point that an atom represents one bit in some form or fashion. But Stanford University researchers have used a quantum hologram model to store the characters 'S' and 'U' by encoding the data at a rate of 35 bits per electron. Will this sort of sub-atomic storage be the future of nanotechnology?
