Phase-change optical disks where the cooling rate has been reduced by design show about double the sensitivity of conventional disks and are capable of more than 500,000 overwrites. The disk layer materials are the same as for conventional phase-change disks. The disk diameter is 120 mm and the capacity 9is 650 MB single sided, the same capacity as a conventional CD-ROM. The new 'PD' concept drive has a simple optical unit and supports both 4X data rate CD-ROMs and the new phase-change overwritable disks.
