  • Femtosecond Laser Writing

    The UK's University of Southampton has developed a 5 dimensional optical recording technology that uses glass. A small disk (2cm) can hold 360TB and has lifetime measured in billions of years.

        Haha We were interested in this because we have to submit digital data for archiving. The people who store the data state gold discs, but as we know their lifetime is dependent on so many variables. Even this article states 13 billion years at 'room temperature'. Nevertheless, it is quite clearly a vast improvement over the technology currently available to the masses.

          Given the Sun is estimated to have some 5 billion years before it goes Nova, the maximum survivable temperature may be an important factor.....

          13 billion years... so just enough time for the Windows file copy to complete then.....
