Paper Abstract

Great progress in optical storage has taken place in the last decade. The development of optical discs is always towards higher and higher storage density and data transfer rate in order to meet the ever-increasing requirements of applications in audio, video and image areas. It has been proved a logical and effective approach to employ laser light of shorter wavelength and lenses of higher numerical aperture for increasing storage density, as is shown by the evolution of optical disc from CD family to DVD family. At present, research and development of high density DVD (HD-DVD), blu-ray disc and advanced storage magneto-optical (AS-MO) disc are carried out very extensively. Meanwhile, miniaturization of disc size and use of multiplication techniques to increase the storage density and capacity have already given rise to new formats such as iD Photo disc and Data Play disc as well as multi-layer discs. Digital holographic storage (DHS) disc is also one of the research and development subjects of many companies and research institutions. Some new concept optical storage such as fluorescent multiplayer disc (FMD) is also under intensive development. All these have greatly promoted applications of optical discs in audio, video and image devices.
