Disk and flash memory are the most mainstream storage solutions, but in terms of absolute life, they are far inferior to optical disks.
Some researchers believe that because of the reliability of disks, the carbon footprint of the data center field will not be reduced.

According to reports, a joint team from the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, Melbourne Institute of Technology, and the National University of Singapore demonstrated a new mechanism for effectively improving optical storage density.
Researchers believe that although laser-supported optical data storage is the best choice to meet the growing data demand, the different nature of light limits the size of the information bits that can be recorded, which in turn limits the storage capacity of optical discs.
Prices Of Storage:
Instead, they used a new nanocomposite material that combines graphene oxide flakes and upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) to achieve unprecedented data density.
The researchers also noted that the technology uses a cheap continuous wave laser, which will further help reduce operating costs, while traditional optical writing technology relies on expensive and bulky pulsed lasers.
The researchers said, “Although advances are needed to optimize the technology, the results of the research have opened up new ways to deal with global data storage challenges.
This technology is suitable for mass production of optical discs, so it has the potential.V
