1. The topic of special issue

Optical Data Storage Technology and Its Future

2. Introduction for special issue

The most typical representative of Optical Data Storage Technology (ODST) is optical disc,such as CD, DVD and BD. As the advantages of low cost and long life time, the ODST has been popularized to every household since it is developed from 1980s. In recent years, with the increase of network transfer speed, the optical disc market which has experienced several generations has gradually become depressed. However, in the era of the Big Data cloud storage, the mains data storage methods, such as hard disk, magnetic tape and solid state disk, have the problems of high maintenance cost, high energy consumption, low recording density, short storage life time, slow reading speed and so on. Facing the demand of massive data of long-term and low consumption, the new edge of ODST is coming. The ODST mainly consists of light emitting device, reading and writing optical head device, servo control system device, optical storage material, data transmission system, data codec method, data structure and so on. To explore and develop new ODST, to study its physical mechanism and develop the core technologies will be the important driving force to promote the renewal of this old technology, develop new storage technology market, and continue to innovate and develop. Therefore, Opto-Electronic Engineering plans to launch a special issue on " Optical Data Storage Technology and Its Future" in 2019. The purpose of this special issue is to present innovative ODST and discuss its future development trend based on the review of the core technologies. Hopefully, this special issue will bring something new for the development of ODST.
