Paper Abstract

Over the past few years, 3M has been contracted to develop 14" Magneto-Optic (MM) disk media for advanced optical data storage systems. The high capacity and high data transfer rate potential for this media format appeals to users who require higher performance than the standard 5.25" format. The present article is a status report covering a brief history of 14" (356mm) M-O disk development, initial spaceflight feasibility testing and ongoing prototype development work.
