Paper Abstract

A compact magneto-optical disk head was constructed using a newly developed holographic optical element. The element has an analyzer function with more than 5dB extinction ratios for data signal detection1 in addition to focusing and tracking error signal detection functions . The element was fabricated in a birefringent LiNb03 substrate using the proton exchange method. which is a well known waveguide fabrication technique. In Read/Write experiments using the head, sufficient carrier-to-noise ratio values for practical use were obtained. As a typical result, a 47dB carrier-to-noise ratio was obtained for 3.7MHz pulse recorded signal.
