ISOM ODS Paper 2005 - Iomega NanoOpto - Short Paper, updated 4/17/23, 6:46 PM

Massively multi-level optical data storage using subwavelength-sized nano-grating structures Fred Thomas , Hubert Kostal and Jian Jim Wang

Can 3D reflective nano-grating structures molded in plastic optical ROM media be interrogated by a diffraction-limited focused spot for the retrieval of massively multilevel information? Empirical data for nano-grating encoded data states is presented.
