Paper Abstract

We present our progress on the development of a single-wavelength near-field recording system with a blue-violet laser and a NA=1.45 Solid Immersion Lens in a conventional 3D actuator. We will introduce our near-field optical recorder and present good recording results achieved on discs with a 3 μm thick spin-coated protective polymer cover-layer using a channel bit length of 43.7 nm. Furthermore, we will show recent results on high-speed near-field readout, up to 3xBD speeds, through a cover-layer using feed-forward control in the air gap servo system.
