DVD Holds One Terabyte of Data

Posted on December 15, 2006

A DVD that holds 1 terabyte of data has been developed. It was developed by researchers at the University of Central Florida. SlashGear reports that the technique used to create the 1 terabyte DVD involves the use of two lasers on the recording surface.
They were able to achieve this breakthrough dubbed as the Two-Photon 3-D Optical Data Storage System by developing a technique of shooting two lasers on to a recording surface. These two lasers are each at a different wavelength and create a very specific image that is sharper than those of current techniques.
That will make storage much easier whenever this technology is finally available to consumers.
