Bibliographic information


I read this book on my way back from a conference in Colorado and I wasn't happy that Silicon Valley is so close to Colorado.
Intro and 5 chapters give full good overview of optical data storage and plenty of experimental data.
Book is very useful for students and engineers (optics, material sci., mechanics) and everybody who want to know how his/her DVD or CD is working.
