San Jose, Calif.
- Reports are coming in that the next major step in optical technology will
be the addition of blue-light lasers. The blue light laser can operate
in half the bandwidth of the standard red-light lasers, thus allowing
higher data density. Reports of up to four times the current standard
could mean CD ROM storage of up to 2.6 gigabytes, and have similar
results in terms of optical read/write drives.
