Paper Abstract

Analysis that includes physical optics with diffraction, polarization, and aberration, as well as geometrical optics is used to understand tolerancing of SIL systems. Irradiance distributions inside a simple substrate are explored as the distance between the objective lens and SIL and the radius of curvature of the SIL are varied. Gap-induced aberration is included in the analysis. Irradiance distributions inside a phase-change recording medium are explored versus air gap heights and the thickness of the recording layer in a magneto-optical medium.
