Paper Abstract

The focus-servo system on optical disc mastering conventionally used to be with the off-axis optical setup. As Fig.l shows, a laser beam which does not expose photo-resist, like a red He-Ne laser, leads to an objective from a point off of the optical axis, reflects on the surface ofthe photo-resist and returns in the direction of the incident beam. The reflected beam changes the beam angle from the optical axis according to the working distance of the objective, and is detected as a position with a PSD(Position Sensor Diode). The position-signal from PSD feeds back to the VCM and controls the working distance statically. The focus-servo error remains normally 30nmPP. In the near field operation, however, the working distance should be less than the wavelength The fluctuation caused by that error has a risk of collision between the objective and the glass master. The requirement must be one order of magnitude below like lOnmPP. So a new type of focusservo system had been required.
