    if a atom is taken as referanca to store bits as u know atom's valance
    shells have electrons
    so these electrons can behave as wavs as be de-Brogliee Law any matter
    have wave as well as partical characteristics so ,if a electrons
    follows wave characteristics than it can be
    simultaneously in lower as well as higher orbits .If lower position is
    taken as 0 level and higher as 1.Than an atom is enough to store
    bytes,Hence size of computer reduces 10000
    times small

    Something like that is probably theoretically possible, but we're a long
    way from having the technology to do it (as far as I know)

    Before we get to that point, we'll all be using quantum computers
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_computer ).

    There's a theoretical limit on the size of object that can be used to
    store data, which is the planck length -
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_length ). At that scale, you can't
    guarantee that the thing you're writing on hasn't changed when you come to
    read it, because of the heisenberg uncertainty principle.
