Surpassing Optical Limit for 28000 Times Blu-Ray Storage on a 12 Centimeter Disk

We could soon store 700 Terabytes on a 12-centimeter optical disk which would be equal to storing 28,000 Blu-ray disks. A separate advance with in data encoding could triple storage to 2.1 Petabytes in a single optical disk. Researchers at USST, RMIT and NUS have overcome the optical diffraction limit by using earth-rich lanthanide-doped upconversion …
