IBM Rattles Moore’s Law With Smallest Magnetic Memory Bit

IBM researchers have created what they claim is the world’s smallest memory bit using only 12 atoms. This accomplishment by IBM scientists is the culmination of nearly 30 years of nanotechnology research, IBM said. By demonstrating the ability to store information in as few as 12 magnetic atoms, IBM shows that it can deliver an environment that is significantly less than today’s disk drives, which use about one million atoms to store a single bit of information. This can lead to the creation of smaller, faster and more energy-efficient devices, IBM said.
