The optical memory servo control system performs five major functions. They are micro-processor control, disk spindle speed control, focusing, seeking and radial track-following. Preliminary laboratory results show that an average seek time of 100 msec and one track seek of 300 μsec were achieved over a total of 40,000 tracks. Radial tracking with an error less than 0.1 μm was obtained through a tracking servo. These radial tracking and random access capabilities were achieved by combining the use of a specially designed galvanometer and a translator carriage. Normal operating focus error of less than 0.1 μm was also obtained. Finally, the overall servo control system is greatly enchanced through a microprocessor controller with an adaptive control algorithm. This provides high flexibility to the servo system design in order to meet the stringent performance requirements of an optical memory system. A mathematical model of the complete servo system was developed. The analytical information was used to design and fabricate a laboratory model optical memory device.
