251w ago - TDK has recently [Register or Login to view links] a new 10-layer Blu-ray disc capable of 320GB of storage in development.

According to TDK, to quote: "It is possible to write and read data on and from the disc by using a blue-violet semiconductor laser with an oscillation wavelength of 405nm and an objective lens with a numerical aperture (NA) of 0.85, which are currently used for the Blu-ray disc."

This has been a trend in newer, higher-capacity Blu-Ray discs.
