Paper Abstract

Super-resolution near-field structure (super-RENS) is a functional structure which can overcome the optical diffraction limit and play an important role in nano scale optical data storage. The resolution enhancement of the scatter-type super- RENS optical disk is related to the localized surface plasmon of silver particles dissociated from the AgOx layer and its near-field interaction with the recording pits in the phase change layer. Recently, a new method for optically synthesizing silver nanoparticles in a phase change matrix has been proposed by our group [Mater. Chem. Phys. 135, 467-473(2012)], which provides a potential approach to forming a more simple plasmonic recording structure than the traditional AgOx-type structure. In this paper, field distribution of silver-nanoparticles-embedded Ge2Sb2Te5 phase change recording pits is numerically analyzed by the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. The optical contrast enhancement capability is confirmed for the optimized recording structures when the pit size is smaller than the optical diffraction limit.
