Inventor patents concept for technology that could lead to 3.5 inch disks with 100TB in capacity.

Nanotechnology will deliver a 3.5 inch disk that holds 100TB, according to Michael E. Thomas, president of Colossal Storage Corp.

Thomas invented and patented the worlds first and only concept for non-contact UV photon induced electric field poling of ferroelectric non-linear photonic bandgap crystals, which offers the possibility of controlling and manipulating light within a UV/Deep Blue frequency of 1 nm to 400 nm. The small size of ferroelectric transparent structures makes it possible to fabricate nano-optical devices, such as volume holographic storage.
