A single-sided double-layer recordable DVD disc with a storage capacity of 8.5 Gbyte has been developed. Backwards compatibility with the existing DVD read-only format has been achieved through the use of organic dye recording layers that have intrinsically low absorption at laser's wavelength used for recording and reading. We describe the disc technology that we have developed, present recording results for both layers, and discuss double-layer effects. We demonstrate for the first time the feasibility of a compatible double-layer recordable DVD disc.
