New hard disk write method squeeze in one terabit per inch

Researchers have found a method to combine both bit-patterned recording (BPR) and thermally-assisted recording (TAR) write processes. This could raise the storage density to 1TB per square inch and even 10TB as opposed to the current few-hundreds GB. Combining these two could also create smaller hard drives with large capacity as disk sectors can be as small as 15nm in diameter with write speeds hitting 250Mb/sec.
