Paper Abstract

Optical recording characteristics of textured germanium show a systematic variation in the slope of contrast vs writing energy, as a function of sample production parameters. Textured surfaces have been studied for application to optical storage medial and represent an alternative mechanism to the usual ablative hole-opening process. The important advantage of the textured media is that the slope, S=dC/dE, in the contrast, C, vs writing power, E, curve can be easily altered by adopting various etching conditions in the texturing process.
