Using this process you can manufacture features as small as 3nm, which is a huge improvement over the current 45nm manufacturing process. They have managed to achieve capacities of 10Terrabits or 125GB per square inch, which is 15 times more than what we have today, without any manufacturing defects. This is the equivalent of fitting “250 DVDs” on a surface “the size of a U.S. quarter, which is 25.26 millimetres in diameter”.
According to Brookwood, the principal analyst at Insight64, "It's this kind of basic materials research that has created the opportunities that have made Silicon Valley and American manufacturing great”. The researchers say that if the industry is motivated enough, the technology can be commercialized in as little as ten years. We have come a long way since the invention of computers, but the journey is far from over, the future holds bright prospects. You only need to look at the ten years past, and you will realize what wonderful things, that we haven’t even thought of yet, lie ahead.
