If this were to actualy happen (yeah right) this would be a true next gen tech. both cd to dvd and dvd to blu-ray were some what lacking as a tech jump (amount of storage).

ROY-G-BIV

I guess they're nearing the end of the spectrum. Does that mean that optical will not be able to store more information beyond what we are now using these shorter wavelengths?

400nm is the end of the visible light spectrum, but maybe Ultraviolet which ranges from 10nm to 400nm could be the next wave of optical disk advancements for some time. Though, if we can't see it, would we still call it optical?

Ahh - the invisible rays! I wonder if there will be a word play on that in the new optical iteration of optical drives and media.

In Physics, optics covers both visible and invisible light, so we can still consider it optical.

While not specifically included in the field of optics, other forms of electromagnetic radiation follow similar principles.  Not important to the discussion, just thought I'd include it.
