Paper Abstract

A hybrid finite-difference-time-domain/angular spectrum propagation modeling technique and a finite-difference thermal model are used to study near-field optical and two- photon absorption data storage systems. The electromagnetic model is used to analyze scattering effects in structures where scalar-based theory is not appropriate. The thermal model is used in a near-field magneto optic data storage system to calculate data mark sizes.
