The research team headed up by Dr Joel Yang has discovered a way to increase the data density of a drive to 3.3 Terabit/inch2, effectively meaning 18TB hard drives are possible. Data on a traditional hard drive is stored using nanoscopic magnetic grains. With several of these grains clustered together measuring around 7nm are then used to store one bit of information. Hence if you can pack them together more densely more storage is then possible within the same amount of space.
