Abstract
In general, phase change media have to be initialized prior to recording. Initialization for phase change optical disks involves crystallization of as-deposited amorphous recording films. An initialization-free technology will lead to a low production cost, which is very important for commercialization phase change optical disks. A crystallization assisted layer (CA layer) was deposited just before the sputtering of a recording layer GeSbTe. The CA layer is assist to crystallize GeSbTe film during sputtering. We have confirmed by X-ray diffraction method that the recording layer was crystallized just after sputtering. Our proposed disk with CA layer show the similar performance to the 2.6 GBytes digital video disk- random access memory (DVD-RAM) disk.
