Two-photon volumetric optical can achieve greater than 100 Gb/in2 areal densities necessary for new storage technologies to be competitive. The technology offers inexpensive room-temperature media and robust system tolerances due to the large mark sizes enabled by multilayering. The data transfer rate and effective areal density may be scaled to meet application performance and cost requirements simply by scaling the readout parallelism and number of monolithic layers.
