Paper Abstract

A new concept optical head, using a holographic optical element has been developed. This holographic element combines three optical functions, beam splitter, focusing error detection and tracking error detection optics functions. A polarizing beam splitter function is also combined for magneto-optical disk head use. These holographic optical elements are computer generated holograms fabricated using electron beam lithography technique. A new optical configuration has been designed for this optical head to remove the influence of wavelength variation in the laser diode used for a light source. The off-set signal in tracking error signal has been reduced by introduction of the holograms which are used only for detecting tacking error. The stable operation and high read out S/N ratio have been obtained by applying this holographic optical element.
