Abstract:

THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY SEEKS NEW INSTRUMENTATION USING STATEOF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY FOR IMPROVED DATA COLLECTION WITH BETTER ACCURACY AT LOWER COST. LARGE AMOUNTS OF DATA MUST BE RECORDED TO CHARACTERIZE THE EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS TESTS. QUANSCAN PROPOSES TO APPLY CONCEPTS RECENTLY PROVEN FOR THE SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPE TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A NEAR SOLID STATE MASS STORAGE SYSTEM THAT WILL STORE APPROXIMATELY 440 GIGABITS ON A SURFACE OF ONE SQUARE CENTIMETER. SUCH A MASS STORAGE SYSTEM WOULD BE SMALL, DENSER THAN ANYTHING CURRENTLY ACHIEVED, NONVOLATILE, RADIATION HARDENED, AND CONSUME LOW POWER.
