The present status of waveguide-type integrated-optic disc pickups are reviewed. The authors have proposed and fabricated several types, and have demonstrated their fundamental functions. For the ROM pickup, they successfully reduced the focused spot to a diameter that is slightly larger than the diffraction-limited value, and confirmed capability of the focusing/tracking error signal detection. The pickup was extended to that for magneto-optical (MO) disc system, and the MO pickup was found experimentally to detect a polarization rotation as small as one contained in the signal beam reflected from MO medium. The pickup for parallel-data cards was also fabricated with photodiode array, and seven-track parallel readout was demonstrated. It was found by theoretical analysis that the waveguide-FGC combined type pickup has the possibility of super-resolution readout.
