Tokyo - TDK will display at the CEATEC Show, held Oct. 6-10, a newly developed write-once optical disc offering a total storage capacity of 320GB, according to a report from the Nikkei Electronics news service.

The disc, which has 10 layers, each with a 32GB capacity, has significantly more storage volume that today's 25GB per layer Blu-ray Discs.

The technology uses the same write and reading specs â€” a blue-violet laser with a 405nm oscillation wavelength and an objective lens with a 0.85 numerical aperture â€” as the Blu-ray format.

Nikkei reported that the technology builds on a write-once recording disc TDK revealed in 2006, but that format had just six layers, each of which with 33.3GB of capacity (200GB total).
