To increase the recording bit density of a magneto-optical disk using a shorter-wavelength laser, readout characteristics of disks with Pt/Co multilayered films were investigated by using a 532 nm SHG laser. The experiment using a (lambda) /4 - (lambda) /2 plate differential detection system showed that the disk noise of the Pt/Co disk was caused by a fluctuation of Kerr rotation angle, and that this noise component was reduced by sputter etching the surface of a SiN under-layer. A C/N ratio greater than 40 dB with a 0.45 micrometers domain length was obtained from this noise-suppressed Pt/Co disk.
