Fused silica glass storage

With the move towards keeping records on digital media, there is a need for a storage technology that has a long life time. Hitachi, working with Professor Miura Kiyotaka of Kyoto University's School of Engineering, has developed technology that allows digital data to be read from and written to a device featuring 100 layers of fused silica glass. Whilst the recording density is said to be comparable to that of Blu-ray, fused silica glass could enable digital data to be stored for millions of years.
