Abstract
A commonly used tracking method on pre-grooved magneto-optical (MO) media is the push- pull technique, and the astigmatic method is a popular focus-error detection approach. These two methods are analyzed using DIFFRACTc, a general-purpose scalar diffraction modeling program, to observe the effects on the error signals due to focusing lens misalignment, Seidel aberrations, and optical crosstalk (feedthrough) between the focusing and tracking servos. Using the results of the astigmatic/push-pull system as a basis for comparison, a novel focus/track-error detection technique that utilizes a ring toric lens is evaluated as well as the obscuration method (focus error detection only).
