Are you satisfied with how fast you can process your data? What if it could be faster? Like a hundred times faster? A study suggests that laser-activated magnets could do just that.
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.
The new process would also make our data storage more energy efficient.
