Transcript of Atomic Computing

Atomic Computing Status Still in very, very early stages

Main progress is coming from IBM and universities http://cheap-solar-panel.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/solarsilicon.gif
http://students.apsweb.org/~amunguia/hardware/harddrive.jpg How It Works In one experiment:
Silicon injected with phosphorus
The silicon stored the data with the spin of its electrons
The phosphorus is able to write and read this data

In another experiment:
A logic gate was created with a single naphthalocyanine molecule
Voltage was applied to set the bit's data
The data was read with an extremely precise temperature sensor
What This Means For Computing Nanocomputing

Extremely powerful machines

Reduced energy cost Our current data storage: 160GB on an iPod Atomic Storage: 110 TB on an iPod (110 terabytes=112,640GB) We're It's Headed Overcome Some Major Obstacles

Proved the Concept

Now we're trying to put many of these together into a useful device

Could also be used on super tiny computers
