Paper Abstract

Optical disc readout uses generally the "Central Aperture Readout" method. We show that "Push Pull Readout" can read efficiently very small phase modulation have good transparency and allow the stacking of many layers. We modified the push pull detection by adding a variable transparency in the far field that reduces the interlayer crosstalk, the system has potential for Terabyte capacity. We have realized a 8 layer DVD like optical disc and demonstrated that Push Pull Readout gives sufficient signal even on highly transparent disc.
