Hitachi developed a technique for recording data on Quartz Galss
Hitachi announced the development of a prototype storage media that can store (Record and Read) CD level digital Media on Quartz Glass capable to endure extreme environmental conditions without degrading. This new technology stores data in binary like form (see picture above) by creating dots inside a thin layer of quartz which can be later read with an ordinary optical microscope and compatible software. The first prototype shown by Hitachi is 2cm2 and just 2mm thick and includes in its actual form a four layer design capable to store as much data a your average CD-R.
