Blu-ray Disc format is required by the forthcoming of High Definition TV era which calls for a brand new generation of optical storage after DVD. It is such a technology with wavelength short as 405nm and numerical aperture high as 0.85. The format is designed to have an even wider disc tolerances than those of DVD. Thanks for those more innovative concepts Blu-ray Disc is the most economical storage solution in terms of cost per giga byte. And it is expected to be a long-term optical storage standard rather than an interim solution.
