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.
