Paper Abstract

In recent years there has been an increasing interest in using diffractive optical components in data storage systems such as CD-ROM drives and compact disc players. This paper reviews a number of different diffractive optical components that have been used in commercial products and how they are used in the optical pickup heads. Considerations for manufacturing these types of diffractive optics are also discussed.
