Described is a scheme for high-capacity direct access type storage, i.e., with a bitsize of less than 100 nm, of which the figure shows a diagrammatic view. In a holder 1 there are mounted a plurality of mutually insulated metallic plates 2...5 each connectable via a resistor 6...9 and a multiple switch 10 to a common voltage source 11. Each of the plates 2...5 carries an electrically conducting small dot 12...15 on its surface facing downward in the figure. For addressing, holder 1 can be translated horizontally over a large area, a page, by means of a piezodrive 16, so that each dot 12...15 can address all points contained within the area of one page.
