Acurrent method of storing data using 4 dimentions, the 3 of space and one of intensity, can store 350,000 Gs of data on a standard chip. The method uses a glass disc and is secure since to reread doesn't change the strong glass disc with lower energy reading laser. The higher energy write laser burns the permanent holes in the glass and the size of the holes multiplies the memory store capacity in the area of the groove in x y and z plus the intensity coordinate. This method has limitations however. It takes a high energy laser to write and is expensive and though it has long lasting storage for thousands of years, it's not rewritable.

My solution involves a chip made of self assembling crystals; atoms are used to store the data not the larger zones etched in glass by the laser, though a laser still writes the angles of the atoms. Each atom is strongly bound at room temperature by "freezing" so after write is achieved, the read laser has little chance of unbonding the atom being read. The disc has two phases, at a medium higher temperature, after general heat is applied the bonds of the atoms are more able to read yet still bonded well so only the atoms written by the laser are changed. Then once the data is wtitten, the cooling fixes the memory, like a photo with early methods of improving the saving of older images.

If a reading laser on the other side of the chip, which has four sides and is a crystal to make it by crystallization, reads the other unbound zone where the bonds are not reduced by the heat, and if the bonds of the angles are strong enough, this method made of cheaper read methods, would have both much higher storage ability, much higher security of the data like the glass disc for thousands or millions of years, and also both read and write.
