Paper Abstract

Write once optical media are an attractive method of achieving high density archival information storage via optical DRAW techniques. Recently, emphasis on single laser diode read/write hardware recorders has been noted due to the increased reliability, simplicity, and lower hardware costs. The purpose of this paper, therefore, is to describe the laser diode performance characteristics of a new 1.5 GByte optical disk developed by 3M which features high sensitivity, high S/N, and preformatted, pregrooved protected plastic substrates.
