Model of a single-molecule magnet
Tiny, laser-activated magnets could enable cloud computing systems to process data up to 100 times faster than current technologies, a study suggests.
Chemists have studied a new magnetic material that could boost the storage capacity and processing speed of hard drives used in cloud-based servers.
This could enable people using cloud data systems to load large files in seconds instead of minutes, researchers say.
A team led by scientists from the University of Edinburgh created the material—known as a single-molecule magnet—in the lab.
