In this chapter we present an interesting application of the propagation of laser
light through linear optical media: the ability to spatially confine (trap) cold atoms
within localized light intensity patterns. We first present some of the fundamentals
for understanding how light can trap an atom. Depending upon the relationship
between the properties of the atom and the properties of the laser light, atoms
can be trapped in either localized dark spots, or localized bright spots. We will
describe ...

For example, the arrival of advanced optical media has heralded companion
advances in photonics and in laser and detector technology. In this contribution,
we demonstrate that nanostructured materials fabricated in our laboratory exhibit
dramatically superior optical performance characteristics, foreshadowing great
promise for both fundamental and applied studies. 1 Introduction Since the
advent of the laser nearly 40 years ago, its unique characteristics have been
used to ...

The first section of this chapter deals with dual-layer media, in particular meant
for BD-RE recording. In the second section, phase-change materials for high-
speed recoding are discussed. The emphasis is on DVD+RW and CD-RW high-
speed recording. 5.1. Dual-layer media and recording 5.1.1. Data capacity
increase There are several ways to increase the data capacity of an optical disc.
This can be done by increasing the storage density, by making use of multiple
data layers, ...

hard disk media, and solidstate media. Tape Media Tape remains one of the
most common types of backup media available. Tapes have large capacities and
remain the most costeffective media on the market. Tape is also very fast if large
quantities of data are to be recorded and retrieved sequentially. If data is to be
retrieved randomly, a randomaccess device such as a hard disk or optical drive
would be able to access the data much more rapidly. For data volumes that have
