Diamond plate with a billion gigabytes of memory will appear in a year

Representatives of the Japanese developer Adamant Namiki Precision Jewel Co., Ltd. announced the creation of a breakthrough Technology, in comparison with which modern methods of storing information will be obsolete. The base is an artificial diamond, on the basis of which it is possible to build quantum computing systems that are thousands of times superior to all current technologies.


The development was carried out jointly with scientists from Saga University. According to the members of the research team, quantum computing is in its infancy. Work on their use has been going on for a long time, as it opens up new possibilities for data storage and computing needs.

The main problem with the introduction of new technology turned out to be the material for creating an effective carrier. As a result of long-term studies, a diamond with a nitrogen-vacancy center was chosen as the basis. A structural defect allows data to be stored in the form of qubits. But there is a problem here too - growing an artificial diamond in the laboratory requires the use of nitrogen gas. But, if the content of nitrogen atoms in the material exceeds 3 ppb, the storage efficiency and reliability of the media are reduced.


One thin 55mm platter holds more data than a billion Blu-ray discs

Another problem was that existing facilities did not allow obtaining a diamond of the highest purity with a diameter of more than 4 mm. A group of scientists and engineers has developed a new production technology that allows the synthesis of wafers up to 55 mm in size, while maintaining the required purity.

A sapphire substrate with a stepped structure is used, which guarantees the expansion of the diamond to the sides as it grows without stretching and cracking. At the same time, much less nitrogen is required, which makes it possible to reduce its content in the final product.

Plates will help not only take computing to a new level, but also store huge amounts of data. So, one element fits 1 exabyte - 1 gigabytes. Approximately so much is transmitted by all mobile devices in the world in 073 day. That is, the memory of one smartphone in the future will become huge, not to mention computers and information storage systems. The company plans to begin production of diamond plates as early as 741, but there is no cost data yet.

        About them relatives. Constantly some applications fill the memory, and everything strives to be saved not on the inserted flash drive, but on the memory of the smartphone itself. Infuriates wassat

        That is, the memory of one smartphone in the future will become huge, not to mention computers and information storage systems.

    All over the hill, all over the hill ....

    They promised their super-capacious batteries, yes light bulbs, but so far everything is not there, everything has to be ordered from China

      Well, we already have tablets with a flexible screen from Chubais ... Well, the Guarantor Himself held them in his hands and praised them ... All this noodles are fed up ... You, yo, give funding normally and a salary (fuck a million money) , and then ... and then what? ...
