INTRODUCTION 
The name Blu-ray is derived from the underlying technology, which utilizes a blue-violet laser to read and write data.  The name is a combination of "Blue" (blue-violet laser) and "Ray" (optical ray).  According to the Blu-ray Disc Association(BRDA) the spelling of "Blu-ray" is not a mistake, the character "e" was intentionally left out so the term could be registered as a trademark.  Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD) is the name of a new optical disc format that is rapidly replacing DVD.  The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data, up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc.

RECENT RESEARCHES  Currently this technology has increased the capacity of disk
storages from 50 GB to a new increased level of 500GB,as announced by Pioneer company.  Also, the research team of Sony and Japanese Tohoku University announced this joint development of a blue-violet laser, will help in creating Blu-ray discs with a capacity of 1 TB (dual layer).

APPLICATIONS  This technology is extensively used in following devices:-

Blu-Ray Writer

Blu-Ray Publisher

Blu-Ray Disc
