Paper Abstract

With the increasing demand of huge volume, high density and high transmission speed in optical storage, researches on multi-layer storage and multi-wavelength, multi-layer and multi-level storage in a single substrate have started both in China and abroad. This requests new feathers in optical system of optical disks. The objective lens in multi-layer storage needs compensations to varied spherical aberrations produced by varied thickness of storage layers; the objective lens in multi-wavelength and multi-layer storage needs apochromatism to broadband range. If the apochromatism is not ideal, it is needed that the spherical aberrations of multi-wavelength light are uniform and the multi-wavelength light beams are focused separately to obtain better result. A traditional micro-objective whose optical aberration is carefully corrected can be apochromatic to D, F and C in medium numerical aperture and can be used as objective lens of the optical disk of multi-wavelength, multi-layer and multi-level optical storage. This article gives an amended result based on C. G. Wyne's field flattener. The calculation result of optical aberration indicates that the spherical aberration is nearly zero and the secondary spectrum is less than 0.5 times of focal depth. It is also indicated that the MTF of a certain wavelength light matches the ideal MTF curve wherever on axis or off axis, wherever on meridian surface or on sagittal surface.
