The development of long-term data storage technology is one of the urging problems of the time. This paper presents the results of implementation of technical solution for long-term data storage technology proposed a few years ago on the basis of single crystal sapphire. It is shown that the problem of reading data through a substrate of negative single crystal sapphire can be solved by using for reading a special optical system with a plate of positive single crystal quartz. The experimental results confirm the efficiency of the proposed method of compensation.
