Paper Abstract

Phase-change (PC) rewritable optical recording uses a focused laser beam to reversibly switch a submicron-sized area of a thin chalcogenide film between its amorphous and crystalline states. Information is generally stored in these media in the form of melt-quenched amorphous marks on a crystalline background.
