A thin film of Sn-doped and GeTe-rich GeTe-Sb2Te3 shows characteristics that make it suitable for use in rewritable dual-layer optical disks employing a violet laser. By increasing the GeTe component form Ge2Sb2Te5 to Ge4Sb2Te7, and Ge8Sb2Te11, optical changes were increased. By substituting Sn for a proposition of Ge in these compositions, crystallization rates are greatly increased and even a 5 nm-thick film showed a very short laser-crystallization time of less than 50 ns. The material film was successfully applied to Layer 0 of rewritable dual-layer disk: capacity of 27 GB and a 33 Mbps data transfer rate were confirmed for a disk using a conventional 0.6 mm substrate, and 45 GB capacity and the same data transfer rate were obtained for another disk using thin cover layer 0.1 mm thick.
