Paper Abstract

We studied a high areal density recording using a conventional disk on a blue MO system. To increase the areal density, we used mainly three techniques. First, we reduced a disk noise by UV irradiation. Second, we made CNR higher by adjusting the thickness of a metal layer to control the thermal conductivity. Third, we adopted an optical phase shift method for land and groove recording to increase the track density. Using these techniques on an optical pick-up with a 407 nm-Kr laser and a 0.6-NA objective lens, practical system margins were obtained at a 10 Gbit/inch2 areal density.
