The recent developments in the optical data storage technology are studied. CDs and DVDs are well established in the marketplace and Blu-ray Disc (BD)-type products that will be used for high-definition television (HDTV) and home theater, are now becoming available. Magnetically amplifying magneto-optical system (MAMMOS) technology may be used for future optical discs. The outlook for optical storage technology is clearly encouraging and provides a strong motivation for advanced research.
