Paper Abstract

PSR (premastered optical disk by super-resolution) is a super-resolution technique used to increase the recording density of ROM optical disks. Our PSR system uses a novel disk with a nonlinear optical layer, a second-harmonic-generation green laser ((lambda) equals 532 nm), 0.52NA objective lens and eight-to-fourteen modulation coding. By using PSR, a high C/N ration of 51dB was obtained for a pit length of 0.2 micrometers which is beyond the conventional optical limit. Furthermore, we obtained a bit error rate of less than 10-5 for a linear density of 0.185 micrometers /bit and a track pitch of 0.8 micrometers , thus demonstrating the feasibility of our PSR system with six times the areal density compared to the current CD.
