360TB storage disk with Ultra-fast Laser Nanostructuring, a Mind Blowing storage !

Researchers from the University of Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Center and Eindhoven's University of Technology Led by Jingyu Zhang managed to invent a mind blowing real storage material, able to store 360TB per optical disc !

The stored data can stand up to 1 million years, and handle temperature up to 1,832 Fahrenheit, mind blowing hug ? "the femtosecond laser, which emits short and powerful pulses of light, can encode data and save them to three layers of nanostructured dots within the glass only five micrometers apart. The researchers claim the femtosecond laser writes data in five dimensions a figure based on the size, orientation, and three-dimensional position of the nanostructures, check out the picture courtesy of University of Southampton"



they report:
"It is thrilling to think that we have created the first document [that] will likely survive the human race," said Professor Peter Kazansky of the Optoelectronics Research Center. "This technology can secure the last evidence of civilization: all we've learnt will not be forgotten."
