    New Blu-ray Breakthrough, Soon possible to do 1 TB Discs (holy shit)

    Sony Global - News Releases - Joint development of the world's first blue-violet ultrafast pulsed semiconductor la


    Professor Hiroyuki Yokoyama of the New Industry Creation Hatchery Center (NICHe), Tohoku University (hereafter, 'Tohoku University'), and Advanced Materials Laboratories, Sony Corporation (hereafter, 'Sony'), have succeeded in jointly developing a blue-violet ultrafast pulsed semiconductor laser*2 with dramatically improved peak laser beam output levels that are 100 times that of the world's current highest levels.

     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.

     These experimental results have been achieved through integration of Tohoku University’s fundamental technology on ultrashort pulse lasers (Tohoku University is promoting joint research program for industry-academic collaboration based on materials and devices), and Sony’s fundamental technology on semiconductor laser diodes. Hereafter, Tohoku University and Sony will work to further develop its fundamental technology for creating even higher output and multi-functionality, while developing the practical applications of this technology to make these systems even more compact and stable.

    That means we can double the graphics because we have twice as much space!

    But really this is pretty cool. Movies and games would be able to use uncompressed music/sounds with that amount of space.

    or they can pad the hell out of the disc with trash files like they did Killzone 3 and MGS4.


    (why would you pad a disc just add more content)

    That's what I love about games. There's no limit to what can be done. Can you even imagine what games are going to be like in 5 years?

    Does this mean we can see Uncharted 4 with the graphics at maximum power? If so awesome

    Maybe they can figure something out so we won't have to install every game. That would be a life-saver for people with small HDD's.

    ALL-HAIL-SONY! lets see you do something, microsoft
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    We can build it, we have the power!

    i hope you not trying to quote the 6 million dollar man.

    looks like i'm buying the lotr extended cuts again if they actually put the whole movie on 1 disc this time

    So PS4 games are going to be that much bigger...........yeah I think the digital distribution of games will defiantly be put off for a couple of more generations. This I like

    not the ps3's fault but they really need to put in a faster blu ray drive
    1tb is nice but how fast u can stream the information is just as important
    not excited until this happens

    absolutely amazing
    technology just keeps getting better and better =]

    This laser is going to jump a lot of technology forward, not just blu-rays.

    Lasers like this could be the fulcrum of making nano-etched circuit boards, for example.

    This will extend blu-ray, but I'm not convinced this will prevent it from being replaced by holographic or organic optical discs.

    (why would you pad a disc just add more content)
    Actually they just didn't compress graphic files. Its common practice for DD, 360, and PC titles to compress the bulk of the data during storage and then allow the data to be uncompressed when processed by the game. Its one of the big reasons why having large amounts of RAM/G-RAM helps speed up processing, because you have a larger cache to store data during the processing (think of it like having a bigger vacuum cleaner when cleaning a carpet).

    I'm not sure why you single out those two titles, dozens of PS3 games do it. The magazines and such make a big deal out of the game taking up XX GB on the disc, but its the same data that would go on 1 or 2 DVDs, its just uncompressed.

    Compression isn't that big of a deal, for everybody's information, there are dozens of compression algorithms that aren't destructive. Storing the uncompressed data just saves a step in data processing.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
