Paper Abstract

The current status of erasable phase-change recording materials is re-viewed. Using GeTeSn-based materials as examples, dynamic perform-ance data are presented along with discussions of the basic physical mechanisms determining media performance. For applications requiring limited number of cycles, phase-change materials have been developed to a very practical level.
