Eugen Pavel

Dr. Eugen Pavel is a Romanian scientist and the inventor of the "Hyper CD-ROM", a 3D optical data storage medium with a claimed initial capacity of 10 TB and with a theoretical capacity of 1 PB [http://www.cdfreaks.com/news/10000-GB-can-be-stored-on-one-Hyper-CD-ROM.html cdfreaks.com's translation of a Romanian article on the Hyper CD-ROM] ] on a single disc. It is considered by some to be the next revolution in computer storage.

Dr. Pavel graduated with a physics degree from the University of Bucharest in 1976 [http://www.dntb.ro/users/frdbuc/hyper-cdrom/hyper.htm Hyper CD-ROM: Three Dimensional Optical Memory with Fluorescent Photosensitive Glass] ] . He was awarded the Romanian Academy Prize in 1991 and obtained his doctorate in Physics from the Romanian Institute of Atomic Physics in 1992 [http://ponteuxin.tripod.com/science.html The Center of Excellence for Advanced Technologies "Euro-Asia"] "The Gutenberg era sets - the Pavel era begins."] .

He won the "Prix International de l’Organisation Mondiale de la Presse Periodique" and a gold medal at the November 1999 EUREKA Contest in Brussels for inventions that lead to the creation of the "Hyper CD-ROM". Dr. Pavel has published more than 40 books and articles, and he is the holder of 62 patents and patent applications.

In an interview about his work on the Hyper CD-ROM, Dr. Pavel stated that "the research for this project is 100% personal, (and) so is the support for experiments." (English translation of quote originally published in Romanian)

Dr. Pavel's Hyper CD-ROM technology is patented in 21 countries: the USA, Canada, Japan, Israel and 17 European states.USA company Constellation 3D announced on June 7, 2000 a similar optical storage media under the name "Fluorescent Multilayer Disc" [http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,31724-page,1/article.html "Hyper CD-ROM Packs Terabytes"] PC World, 12 October 2000] Recently "Hyper CD-ROM" was reported again [http://www.our-picks.com/archives/2006/12/07/the-future-of-discs-100tb-cds/ The future of discs: 10TB CDs] News article, 7 December 2006] but it is not clear what progress has been made since first announcement in 2000.
