Paper Abstract

This paper describes the principles of mastering as a means of preformatting recordable optical data storage disks with sector heading marks and tracking grooves. It is shown from calculations based on vectorial diffraction theory that optimum read-out signals are obtained from grooves wider than pits on read-only optical disks. Two methods to realize such wide grooves are indicated.
