18TB Hard Drives made Possible Using Table Salt

Geek: Hard drive storage continues to increase at a steady rate, but just how long can we keep squeezing more data on to those platters? TDK has managed to ensure that the density keeps rising for a few more generations with its HAMR head innovation, but that may have already been rendered redundant through another discovery by a Dr Joel Yang at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE).

The story is too old to be commented.

Without the use of costly gear, Dr. Joel Yang and team discovered that clustering info on the nanoscopic level through the use of sodium chloride made much higher storage space resolutions possible, and hence greater storage capability.
