Holographic storage for everyone


Maxell hints that it will ship 300 GB optical media next year, in September 2006 to be more exact. The bandwidth is decent too: 160 Mbps. The technology behind all this? Holographic storage:



Holographic recording technology uses intersecting signal and reference laser beams to store data in a number of 3D holographic images.




According to Maxell, one 13cm optical disc can store up to 150 million pages — more than 63 times the capacity of DVD. […]


The technology also has an impressive lineage. Hitachi-owned Maxell is working with InPhase Technologies, a subsidiary of Lucent, which has led development of holographic media.

    Lucia acum mai are 2 saptamani si o sa ii fie scos ghipsul.
    Operatia arata foarte bine si sper ca in cateva saptamani va fi in stare sa mearga singura.

    Cu bine,
