Superman can store data for 13.8 billion years
#Cosmoread: Magna Carta, copies of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the King James Bible is now a digital one piece of glass, “Superman Memory Crystal” up to 13.8 billion for the ability to save a tremendous amount of information that is known as is stored on the year, the researchers say.
Using a method of laser etching, University of Southampton, United Kingdom, researchers at the coin-shaped pieces of glass on the store these documents, “Optics”, along with Isaac Newton’s scientific texts. These small disc 374 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius) heat can survive for billions of years. And at room temperature, they can last almost forever, the researchers said.
“It seems that we and future generations of technology to protect documents and information space is created to store it is exciting,” Peter Kazansky, a professor in the university’s Optoelectronics Research Center, said in a statement. “This technology can secure the ultimate proof of our civilization, all we have learned will not be forgotten.”
Kazansky and colleagues at the first laser and San Jose, California in the Electro-Optics Conference in 2013 in his “5-D data storage” reported. Researchers nanostructured dots that are 5 micrometres apart information fematosecond stamping, laser which produces pulses of lasers that are very short, use. These nano-sized etchings polarized light travels through the glass. A combination of a polarizing lens and an optical microscope that the message “decode” needs, the researchers said.
5D’s surname nanostructures 3D position and orientation are displayed along with their size.
In 2013, researchers recorded a 300-kilobyte text file, but not a single glass disk capacity of 360 terabytes of data (1,000,000,000 kilobytes), they reported. Disk 1,832 degrees F (1,000 ° C) are stable.
Southampton researchers and early February in the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the closing ceremony of the Year of Light initiative is part of the organization as a gift copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights granted. Scientists Glass “Superman Memory Crystal,” “Superman” movies and is a nod to the comics in the memory crystal. According to the University, researchers now industry partners are seeking to develop the technology further.
