Paper Abstract

Based on a blue diode laser (405 nm wavelength) and a two- element objective lens with a numerical aperture of 0.85, a third generation optical recording system has been developed that is able to record 22.5 GB on a single sided 12 cm diameter disc, at a user data rate of 50 Mb/s. The system is referred to by the technical name DVR for high definition Digital Video Recording. In this paper, we review the physical and the system concept, the phase change media, the optical pick up unit, and the drive implementation.
