Memory chips with permanent memory

As the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics announced, the first breakthrough on the way to memory chips that do not lose their content has been achieved. This was achieved with a thin layer of the material lanthanum bismuth titanium oxide on silicon wafers.

However, this is particularly interesting because the memory also has a long-term memory, not like today's memory chips, the DRAMs, who would lose their data, their memory would not be refreshed electronically several times per second, which is why the data is not retained in the DRAMs without power supply. With such memory chips, you would not have to reboot the computer, simply switch it on, and all data that was in the memory when the PC was switched off can be accessed again in fractions of a second. Unfortunately, there are still problems that the researchers still have to get under control in order to enable this new technology to be used commercially.
