Paper Abstract

We have investigated the recording characteristics of the dual-layer phase change recording media for the sysetm with the NA of 0.65, the wavelength of 405 nm, and the light incidence on 0.6-mm-thick substrate having the land and groove format. For both L0 and L1 of the dual-layer disc, we have adopted bismuth substituted pseudo-binary GeSbTe alloy film as the recording layer and a novel interface layer material in order to improve overwriting characteristics. Bit error rate measurements have successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the user capacity of 36GB and confirmed 30GB with tilt margins.
