Elsewhere on this site, I write about using Aluminum to store Zetabytes of data. The Quantum Computing geeks don’t get it; they are missing the boat. To help them out, I am adding this page about aluminum storage as RAM and as Bus speeds.
Aluminum foil is dirt cheap; we through tons of it away in our garbage all over the world. Yet, a one inch by one-half inch strip of aluminum foil will store 256 Terabytes of non-volatile, Random Access Memory or RAM. Not only that, but it will support as much as 1 Terabyte to 32 Terabytes of Bus Speed between the processors and the main storage (Hard Drive/Server). This is an ideal storage platform for Quantum and/or Optical Computing. This is especially true as both of these approaches use vector processing and storage, or should be.
If the main storage device is aluminum, like my page on Zetabyte storage, the bus speed may be pushed to 32 Terabytes and beyond.
This use of aluminum foil does not just apply to RAM; it applies to motherboards, main storage devices using multiple layers of foil, and very large flash sticks or drives. Just think what a small dot or dots of aluminum in a chip will do for internal memory floats.
Oh yes, aluminum as storage uses a vector or vectors that can be linear or non-linear. We are talking of exponential improvements in the storage and retrieval of data; not just the huge increase in the amount of storage.
