The burgeoning growth of digital data has triggered new assessments of data storage, for both the most active storage tier and the long-term archive tier. We investigate this changing landscape and a path forward through our 2019 whitepaper.Read the Whitepaper
Built on years of research, Folio's technology has stood the scrutiny of time.
A threshold writing mechanism in fluorescence-based data storage media based on dye-doped co-extruded multilayer films is investigated. A photothermal process can be used to write data in a simple dye/polymer system, leading to a threshold response similar to commercial optical data storage media.
Data writing nonlinear in intensity has been demonstrated. This allows low crosstalk between layers so that data can be written in many layers, read many, many times, and can be written at high speed.
Co-extrusion is able to produce films on a much larger scale at a much lower cost than current methods. The material compatibility and mechanical flexibility allow for new data formats with higher capacities to be realized.
