"A team from Swinburne University of Technology in Australia
said that by harnessing nanoparticles and a "polarization"
dimension to existing technology, storage can be massively boosted
without changing the size of a current disc.
"The researchers, who have signed a deal with Samsung
Electronics, said the technique had allowed them to store 1.6
terabytes of data on a disc with the potential to one day store up
to 10 terabytes.
"One terabyte would be enough to hold 300 feature length films
or 250,000 songs."
