Paper Abstract

A new high SNR readout method for quadri-valued MO recoding by detecting both MO rotation angle (theta) and ellipticity (eta) with only single wavelength is proposed. This advanced method is demonstrated by using a double-layered MO disk and green laser. Each layer of the double layered MO disk is independently read by an optical head for detecting (theta) and (eta) at 514.5 nm in wavelength.
