Recent efforts to improve the media sensitivity of optical recording have resulted in the development of various multi-layer constructions and in particular, the optically tuned anti-reflective trilayer configuration. In order to further enhance the recording sensitivity, many trilayer media use low melting materials such as tellurium or tellurium alloys for the light absorptive layer and/or a light transmissive layer that is easily sublimable, decomposable or vaporizable by the laser heat. In general, these materials compromise the media stability such that some form of environmental protection is required to ensure archival storage.
