Paper Abstract

One of the key elements of an optical storage system is the recording medium. An important part to the successful development of media technology are the various techniques for characterization of the media. In this paper, several of the techniques are described. It is shown that useful information concerning the performance of the media can be derived without actual recording and playback. These techniques are obviously important when the recording technology is based on a non-erasable, write-once, read-only type of media.
