Paper Abstract

Dual-layer optical disks comprised of two data layers were developed to study readout/write/erase characteristics. This disk was composed of recording layer 1 and 2, of high transmittance and high reflectivity, respectively. Layer 1 and 2 of 15 and 20 nm increase transmittance and reduce writing power for recording. Only 1.5 mW laser power was sufficient for readout, 9 and 16 mW was required for recording on recording layer 1 and 2, respectively. This dual-layer disk can double data capacity on a disk substrate.
