bubble memoryNon-volatile memory composed with a thin layer of material that can be magnetized in only one direction. When a magnetic field is applied to a circular area of this substance that is not magnetized in the same direction, the area is reduced to a smaller circle, or bubble. During the first stages while bubble memory was released it was widely believed that it would become one of the leading memory technologies, but these promises have not been fulfilled. Other non-volatile memory types, such as EEPROM is faster and less expensive.
