Abstract
Solid Immersion lens technology was originally discovered for microscopy. In the past few years significant investments in this technology have been made for the purposes of optical data storage. The advantages and challenges of SIL technology for storage applications will be discussed, including the effects of evanescent coupling, media layer structure, and lens material selection on aerial density and signal-tonoise ratio. Experimental results for recording at high densities with a SIL based drive system will be presented.
