This book presents principles and applications to expand the storage space from 2-D to 3-D and even multi-D, including gray scale, color (light with different wavelength), polarization and coherence of light. These actualize the improvements of density, capacity and data transfer rate for optical data storage. Moreover, the applied implementation technologies to make mass data storage devices are described systematically. Some new mediums, which have linear absorption characteristics for different wavelength and intensity to light with high sensitivity, are introduced for multi-wavelength and multi-level optical storage. This book can serve as a useful reference for researchers, engineers, graduate and undergraduate students in material science, information science and optics. 

Professor Duanyi Xu received his Bachelor degree of Optical Engineering at Tsinghua University in 1961.

Editorial Reviews

"This substantial volume certainly captures the breadth and depth of the challenges related to the development of multi-dimensional optical storage. . this book is best seen as a research monograph. It has potential for use by cross-disciplinary researchers aspiring to enhance optical storage capabilities." (Alan Shore, Optics & Photonics News,, October, 2016)
