Does that mean you've invented the perfect laser-guided tightly-focused

Why do you assume it is *me* that does the inventing of such things?
Would you be so sceptical if you heard of IBM doing it, given that they have
already announced the manipulation of single atoms? Go google?

Well, you did respond to my comment with "LOL", which to me implies disbelief.

And why this back reference to a _disk_ rather than a crystal or lattice array?

So I was just explaining in rather more detail. Yes it would be great if we can have your crystal or lattice memory, but I suspect it will suffer greatly from quantum degradation :-(

As some great physicist once said (Neils Bohr?) - "Man proposes, nature opposes". Computers are fast being miniaturized to the point at which classical physics ceases to work ...
