Maximum PC reports that Constellation 3D (C3D) has developed an optical drive
technology call Fluorescent Multi-layer Disc and Card (FMD/C) that can read and
write more than 140 GB to a single transparent CD-ROM sized disc. FMD/C uses a
laser to activate the fluorescent material contained in the grooves of the
transparent disc and interprets the light emitted from the material as data.
FMD/C achieves its high capacity from the multiple data layers and is capable of
containing up to five times the number layers in standard DVD-ROMs. FMD/C drives
are expected to support traditional CD-ROM and DVD-ROM media and may be
available by end of 2001.
