It may contain preliminary or speculative information, and may not reflect the final version of the product. Two-Photon 3-D Optical Data Storage refers to an optical storage system under development by a team at the University of Central Florida. Financed with grants from the United States, United Kingdom, and China, a team including Kevin D. Belfield and C. C. Corredor is pursuing a method of recording and preserving optical media at extremely high densities, by use of fluorescence and two-photon excitation microscopy. Media used in this application can operate for 10000 read-write cycles (this may improve during development) before it becomes degraded, and be stacked to support up to one terabyte of data. As of December 2006, this technology is still in the development phase.
