   Compact Disc

CD or compact disc is a circular disk made ​​of metal or plastic-coated material that can be electrified, so that is a magnet. CD also store data. The data recorded on it, then read from the disk by using the coil pengonduksi called head. During the reading process, the head does not move at all. While the disk plate moves underneath. This CD can store 783 MB of audio information on one side.

Materials Manufacturer
Disc is made from polycarbonate material which is coated with aluminum for the reflective surface. The information tracked from the CD by using low-intensity laser is placed in the optical disc player or drive unit.

How CD Work
Lasers will shine a clear protective layer, when the motor drives at work playing disc CD player. Laser that serves to track and display the data, either in the form of sound, images, or data recorded on one side CD, the CD also known as the most successful technology products throughout the history of human life.

James wanted a system that will record and play back a song without having direct contact antarbagiannya. James saw that the best way for it is by using light.
After somersaults racked his brains for several years, he finally found a way to save data in the light-sensitive plate. This data is modeled in `bits` of light is very small. A laser beam reads the bit structure of this light, then the computer will convert this data into an electronic signal. And for the first time the compact disc was born. Then in 1970, James received the patent.
In 1972, Klass Compaan, a physicist at the Phillips Research with his friend, Piet Kramer, managed to display the model's first color video discs. At that time, has not been widely publicized because there are still many weaknesses.

But, not long after will be active again and replaced with the presence of the DVD forum. DVD technology was first introduced by Japan in 1996.
