Paper Abstract

The computational power of current high-performance computers is increasingly limited by data storage and recall rates. In existing sequential-access electronic memories, a hierarchy of devices from cache memory to secondary storage provides a performance continuum, allowing a balanced system design. Here we discuss the use of 3-D volume storage based on two photon materials to bridge the gaps in the storage hierarchy of parallel-access memories.
