Blue laser technology HD DVD discs write data on a layer 0.6 millimeters from the surface, the same depth as current DVDs. Red laser (650 nanometers) is used for DVD today – by contrast HD DVD uses blue laser, which operates at lower wavelengths (405 nanometers) Why do nanometers matter? Shorter wavelengths suffer less diffraction, which enables a tight focus on the read-write surface. Consequently, the blue laser technology allows for more data to be stored on a disc of the same diameter as today’s standard DVD.
