George T Krieger, Fred C Thomas Iii: Latent irradiance discrimination method and marker system for cartridgeless data storage disks. Iomega, ma gao, November 28, 2001: CN99812555

A cartridgeless data storage disk for a data storage disk drive has a latent irradiance marker. A light source illuminates the marker and the marker emits irradiance as phosphorescence. A photosensor detects the emitted irradiance, and the decay time is determined. The decay time is checked to provi ...
