Paper Abstract

We made improvements on the previously reported hard-coat for cartridge-free Blu-ray disc from a viewpoint of an anti-fingerprint property. As a result of this study, two types of the hard-coat have been obtained. One is for Blu-ray discs of ROM and write-once types, and the other is for that of rewritable type. The former well inhibited a deterioration of bit error rate (bER) of the signal written prior to the fingerprint adhesion. The later exhibited low bER for the data signals written both before and after the fingerprint adhesion. These results are attributable to the area ratio of drops of fingerprint-ingredient on the disc surface, and the low area ratio resulted in a low bER. Moreover, it was confirmed that the disc with higher contact angle of oily compound exhibited the lower area ratio of the fingerprint.
