28 June 1999 High-data-rate phase-change media for the digital video recording system
Author Affiliations +
Today’s major trends in optical recording are the increase in storage capacity per disc and the increase in data-rate, both for reading and for writing. To enlarge the capacity, there are two straightforward means to reduce the optical spot size: increase of the numerical aperture of the objective lens (NA) and reduction in laser wavelength λ.
