As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Frank Trager (University of Kassel). Journal topics include laser physics, linear optics, nonlinear optics, photonic devices, optical & laser materials, and...
An optical disc drive is a disk drive that utilizes electromagnetic waves or a laser light near the light spectrum in order to read and write data to or from optical discs. Some drives can only read from discs; however, most recent drives are generally both readers and recorders. Recorders are often times referred to as burners or writers. CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs are familiar examples of optical media. The laser and optics aspects of optical disc drives are very complex. The most...
A compact disc with read only memory is called a CD-ROM. It is a pre-pressed disc that contains data to be stored on a computer. CD-ROMs may also contain music play lists or other data. While the content on them is accessible, it is not writable by the computer. CD-ROMs are widely used to distribute computer software such as games and multimedia applications; however, other forms of data can be stored depending on how much free space is on the CD-ROM. Some CDs are able to be played using a...
