We discuss here some of the basic issues involved in the development of an optical storage medium based on the laser micromachining of thin tellurium films. Results are presented in the areas of recording sensitivity, materials resolution, error statistics, and archival stability. It is shown that a medium using 20-30 nm of tellurium deposited on polymethyl methacrylate substrates is an extremely attractive choice.
