Good bye Blu Ray, hello Violet Ray in PS4?
 

 
Japanese researchers from Sony Corporation and Tohoku University announced on July 20th the development of a next-generation blue-violet ultrafast pulsed semiconductor laser with 100 watt output aimed at practical technology like disk storage.

Super Geek talk below
This latest successful development is an all-semiconductor laser picosecond pulse source with a laser wavelength of 405 nanometers (1 nm = one-billionth of a meter) in the blue-violet region. It is capable of generating optical pulses in the ultrafast duration of 3 picoseconds (1 picosecond = one-trillionth of a second), with ultrahigh output peak power of 100 watts and repetition frequency of 1 gigahertz. Advanced control of the newly-developed and proprietarily-constructed GaN-based mode-locked semiconductor laser*3 and semiconductor optical amplifier*4 have enabled peak output power in excess of 100 watts to be achieved, which is more than a hundred times the world’s highest output value for conventional blue-violet pulse semiconductor lasers.

Although there have been ultra high-output laser devices combining solid-state lasers*5 and a second harmonic generation unit for high functionality and high-value leading-edge chemical research applications in the past, the light source box itself was bulky and a specialist technician was required to ensure the stable operation of the laser. There are high expectations that this newly-developed semiconductor laser system, which incorporates semiconductor diodes, can have a much wider range of future applications. For instance, this technology enables the size of components such as the light source box to be drastically reduced.

This newly-developed ultra high-output, ultrafast pulsed semiconductor laser light source is capable of using a nonlinear optical process known as two-photon absorption*6, which occurs only as a result of high intensity optical pulses. When light from the laser beam is concentrated on the lens, it creates chemical and thermal changes in the vicinity of the lens focus spot which is narrower than even the diameter of the focus spot of the lens itself. It is anticipated that application of these properties will be possible in a wide range of fields such as three-dimensional (3D) nano-fabrication of inorganic/organic materials in the order of nanometers, and next-generation large-capacity optical disc storage.

 Sony tested the principles for applying this technology in next-generation large-capacity optical disc-storage by creating void marks with a diameter of approximately 300 nanometers at intervals of 3 micrometers on the interior of plastic material, and successfully read these marks with the laser beam.


In a press release, Tohoku University and Sony stated:

“This latest successful development is an all-semiconductor laser picosecond pulse source with a laser wavelength of 405 nanometers (1 nm = one-billionth of a meter) in the blue-violet region. It is capable of generating optical pulses in the ultrafast duration of 3 picoseconds (1 picosecond = one-trillionth of a second), with ultrahigh output peak power of 100 watts and repetition frequency of 1 gigahertz. Advanced control of the newly-developed and proprietarily-constructed GaN-based mode-locked semiconductor laser and semiconductor optical amplifier have enabled peak output power in excess of 100 watts to be achieved, which is more than a hundred times the world’s highest output value for conventional blue-violet pulse semiconductor lasers.”

Moreover, the two institutions noted that their system eliminated the need for a “bulky” light source and “specialist technician” to run previous lasers with similar qualities. They wrote, “There are high expectations that this newly-developed semiconductor laser system, which incorporates semiconductor diodes, will be able to be used in a much wider range of applications in the future thanks to technology such as this, which enables the size of devices such as the light source box to be drastically reduced.”
Blue-Violet laser as the next DVD/Blu-ray

In particular, Sony indicated they are aiming to use the laser in next-generation disk storage devices, having already achieved successful initial testing.

Japanese news reports added quantified values to laser announcement. The Yomiuri wrote that new laser is expected to allow for disks to hold 20 times the capacity of the Blu-ray. The newspaper conjectured that if Blu-rays can hold a little over two movies worth of high-quality film, the blue-violet would be able to handle more than 50 titles. Others likened that capacity to not only easily fitting all of Lord of the Rings or Star Wars on one disk, but entire seasons of anime or TV shows like 24.

No indication was given on when the new technology might reach consumers.

yeaaaa, notice how everytime there is a new playstation, it plays a new format

ps1=cd, ps2=dvd, ps3=blu-ray, ps4=?

The problem is that countries like s**tty a.ss Canada have ISPs that cripple their users with 60gb of downloads per month and whatnot. I believe its the same for some in the US too but not to as great of an extent.


I don't see purely digital media being a viable option until the internet becomes more open to consumers in North America at least.

And @ people who wasted their money on a technology that was dead before it even got off the ground.

I'm not even sure that piracy scares Sony...they just want to be able to sell the rights to the format to studios and make big money in licensing fees

someone would have to sit down and do statistical comparison for the studios comparing licensing fees vs the costs a.ssociated with the distribution of digital data

they're also probably scared of icing out the broke and/or old people that are not technologically fluent that love their physical media and those that don't have high speed internet and available to them

yeah, the supreme court just said that the ISPs in America can start their tiered services, the ISPs haven't said when they will though

but even then, I think it'd be cheaper to pay for the highest tier every month and not deal with buying DVDs/Blu-Rays or whatever

the days of sitting down and putting a DVD in are dead to me...I wanna be able to double click and start watching stuff in 2 seconds when I'm on the PC...I got a laptop signed on all the time anyway

if you really think Sony, of all people is going to try to drop a new format with their 1 fo 516545465465 history with new media you are sadly mistaken.

I already have my home theater set up that way..

1) Download blu-ray rips
2) Buy a low-profile PC with an Nvidia chipset that can do 1080p without a graphics card
3) build a storage server with TBs of hard drive space
4) stream blu-rays via ethernet using XBMC as a front-end

I've got hundreds of blu-rays that are literally at my fingertips and load within 3 seconds each.

Never going to buy a movie again.

Lets be real, do you honestly see Blu-ray as a serious long-term option when movies now are TENS Of terabytes each? When you STILL have to change discs to see different seasons or watch special features on some discs?

Yes. There are still roughly about 50% of people that don't even have a high speed connection, not to mention people like myself who just like to have a physical copy of what they are paying for, not to mention there a bunch of people who are just fine with DVD quality. 700 MB>>>>>>>>>

Of course blu ray will be here to stay for a long time what you think HD-DVD Is going to come back?


Anyways how big you think the disc size will be?
