Paper Abstract

In the field of optical recording much has been written on the general theory of operation of the optical recording and playback system.1'2'3 However, one of the areas that has received comparatively little attention is the detailed understanding of optical interaction of the media surface with the focused laser beam and the resultant intensity profile in the detector plane of the optical head. While much has been published on the interactions involved in the thermal-physical writing process for the many forms of media under development today, the optical interactions involved in reading, detection, and servoing have largely been derived by applying physically sound, but generalized, arguments to intense experimental investigations.
