Paper Abstract

The introductory remarks show that the properties of light sources and discs require the use of objectives similar to those used in microscopes. Conventional lasers and semiconductor lasers have a Gaussian intensity distribution. Bearing this in mind the ideal intensity distribution is calculated and the results are shown as "light mountains". Finally, the influence of aberrations and tolerances is discussed.
