Paper Abstract

The realization of a prototype miniaturized 5 mm height optical drive and 28 mm media is reported here. Using the optical light path as a starting point, this presentation will highlight the high degree of miniaturization that is achieved in the field of the optical pickup, optical components and mechanics. Furthermore, the use of newly developed disc media is discussed.
