Paper Abstract

The recording performance of MAMMOS-type disks is investigated by computational modelling, and strategies for improving written bit shape and regularity are suggested. Laser power, record layer coercivity and record field waveform are found to be important in determining shape and regularity of recorded marks. The LP-MFM method is shown to be suitable for recording short marks with accurately located edges.
