Researchers unveil new nano-data technology

World's smallest magnetic digital-storage device could lead to smaller, more efficient computers.

    Researchers at IBM have created the world's smallest magnetic digital-storage device, using just 12 atoms to hold a single data bit of information.

    The discovery could lead to a new class of memory chips that would make smaller, more energy efficient computers.
