Fred C Thomas III: Retroreflective marker for data storage cartridge. Iomega Corporation, Woodcock Washburn Kurtz Mackiewicz & Norris, June 10, 1997: US05638228 (57 worldwide citation)

A cartridge for a data storage disk drive has a retroreflective marker. Light from a source is reflected from the marker almost exactly on its incident path. This property makes possible unique identification of the cartridge with minimal senstivity to light reflected from other surfaces. The marker ...
