A Nano Switchable Polar Column System that Allows High-Density Data Storage


Current memory storage materials contain toxic and rare metals, which cause significant environmental impact. Metal-free systems for data-storage using liquid crystals--an advantageous alternative for environmental preservation--struggle with susceptibility to external stimuli. Now, researchers from Chiba University have developed a novel urea-based system with long-term information storage ability and high tolerance towards external thermal and electric fields, paving the way for ultra-high-density memory devices.
