Paper Abstract

The performance of optical disk drives is dependent on the quality of the optical components used in the read/write head. In this paper we discuss the effects of wavefront aberrations on the tracking and focusing servo signals. A heterodyne grating shearing interferometer which can measure the performance of the optical components in the drive environment is then described. Experimental results related to this interferometer is also presented.
