Abstract

An image recording system has been found which can eliminate the use of a laser for readout by replacing it with an inexpensive, nonfocused source of light and using the fluorescence of a material as a source of light for information collection. The concept can apply to videodisk fabrication, optical storage and frequency-doubling technologies.
