Welcome to the ProTeM ( EU FP6 project ) website

ProTeM (Probe-based Terabit Memory) is an EU FP6 Integrated Project funded by the IST Micro-and Nanosystems programme.

Project Aim- To develop Probe Storage micro-nano techniques and systems for ultra-high capacity, low power, small form-factor memories, with a particular focus on archival and backup applications.

Vision- Ultra-high storage densities (1-10 Tbit/sq.in), ultra-high capacities (20 TBytes in CD-sized area), media and system lifetimes and data rates suitable for archival and backup storage.

View the ProTeM Project Flyer and the Tutorial DVD of Probe Storage.

An introduction to the ProTeM project was given by Prof. David Wright from the University of Exeter at the ICT 2008, held in Lyon, France, in November 2008.  Click to download the introduction movie.   


A workshop on probe storage was held at Numonyx Italy S.r.l. in Agrate (MI), Italy on 11th June 2009. Click here to view the agenda of the probe storage workshop and to download the presentations given by some of the experts in probe storage.
