Abstract

3D Optical data storage is demonstrated in co-extruded multilayer films using organic materials. 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.
