Paper Abstract

Characteristics of optical read-only media (O-ROM) having both grooves for tracking and pits that represent data by length were studied. Servo signals were observed over a wide bandwidth up to the data clock frequency and, in addition, the surface structures of the disks were observed. These observations showed that servo signals depend not only on the depth of grooves but also on that of the embossed data pits. Optimizing the depths of pits and grooves based on the results of pit density dependency of servo signals is necessary to ensure good characteristics of pit and groove signals.
