Light-Based Memory Chip Is First To Permanently Store Data

According to this article, researchers have created the first permanent optical memory on a chip that can permanently store data.

Today’s electronic computer chips work at blazing speeds. But an alternate version that stores, manipulates, and moves data with photons of light instead of electrons would make today’s chips look like proverbial horses and buggies. Now, one team of researchers reports that it has created the first permanent optical memory on a chip, a critical step in that direction.
