Summary
  • Manufacturers are developing erasable optical memory products as optical memory market products become a standard option for computing. Some analysts believe the erasable option will be on the market within two years, while others express doubts it will be that soon. The erasable optical disk market is expected to be $2.4 billion once the products do arrive. Matsushita erasable disk technology has phase-changing laser technology: the disks would have up to 10,000 write and erase cycles, life expectancy of up to 20 years, and improved time erasure time of up to one microsecond. One industry source believes Matsushita is capable of having a product ready at once, and when the company produces such a product depends on market demand. Philips announces a group of new new semiconductor materials for erasure of information by laser beam and forecasts a product release within three to five years.
