Paper Abstract

Optical mass data storage systems have developed to the point of application. The advantages of the optical techniques are packing density and increased data rates with random access for retrieval. The key to improvement is the record material; although acceptable archival materials have been developed, progress continues with more efficient techniques and materials to increase packing density, S/N, and data rates. However, to qualify for total competition with magnetic storage systems, it is necessary to provide an erasable and reusable medium, which this paper will discuss.
