From Reuters:

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Researchers at Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ.N: Quote, Profile , Research) have devised a way to make a specialized type of computer chip up to eight times denser using nanotechnology, in a development that could extend the life of current chipmaking technologies, the company said on Tuesday.

The advance by HP could prove to be significant in an area of technology -- nanotechnology -- that has to date been long on promises and short on near-term, real-world applications.

Commercial applications of HP's research could potentially be used not too far in the future in its own line of computer printers, the world's largest, in other consumer electronics areas, and throughout the chip industry at large, HP said.
