Paper Abstract

For high-density recording at a wavelength of 690 nm, we developed a phase-change optical disk with a Si reflective layer. We estimated the effect of interference layer by calculating optical properties. The absorption control required for mark edge recording and a 2 dB C/N improvement was obtained by forming a ZnS-SiO2 interference layer on the Si layer. Under recording conditions with a minimum bit length of 0.335 micrometers and a track pitch of 1.2 micrometers , a sufficient C/N and a BER less than 10-4 were confirmed. This result indicates that the recording capacity of the new disk is more than 4 GB.
