A university startup, Folio Photonics aims to make optical films that can hold 1 to 2 TB. As a cheaper, more manageable alternative to storing data on magnetic discs or tapes, the company will use optical technology developed at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland to make an optical film with 64 data layers. A disc will be on the capacity scale of magnetic tapes used for archival data storage. Suitable for businesses and consumers, the discs also could be useful for pathologists who store not only slides of tissues, but also the digital images they make.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
