Differential phase detection (DPD) is a method of generating a tracking error signal from rotation of the irradiance pattern formed in the pupil of an optical data storage system. The amount of rotation is related to the distance between the scanning spot and the center of the track being scanned. Media parameters, such as reflectivities of the marks and land and the groove depth affect the DPD signal. The representation of mark and land reflectivity vectors on a complex plane diagram proves to be an elegant technique for designers to optimize a given medium for DPD.
