Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a calculation of threshold laser writing powers for textured optical storage media. The threshold powers are affected by the optical properties and microstructure of the textured layer, and the thermal conduction from the spot that is machined by the laser beam. Our calculations are compared to experimental values obtained with textured germanium and silicon optical storage media. The results give useful informa-tion about the optimization of the laser writing process.
