Paper Abstract

The current 3.5' MO disk has a capacity of 640 MB. To increase capacity/recording density, we investigated magnetically induced super resolution. Double mask rear aperture detection is described, resulting in two to four times increase in capacity. In future we want to achieve 15 GB or 20 Gb/in2 five years later from now and 150 GB ten years later. Various technologies to achieve them are surveyed. To increase performance we proposed multi-beam optical head. Laser-assisted magnetic recording will be a breakthrough to the density limitation of magnetic recording caused by thermal fluctuation.
