Plasmon is also developing dual layer media, which will bring the second major capacity gain. By 2005 Plasmon will reduce the thickness of the cover layer on the glass substrate from 1.2 mm to 0.1 mm and incorporate a process that uses dual actuator lenses to allow backward read compatibility, which is used in DVD-ROM drives to read CD-ROM media..."
