Next generation of optical storage will use shorter wavelength lasers and higher NA lens to achieve large capacity and high density. But with increasing NA and decreasing wavelength, the depth of focus decreases rapidly. We describe a technique to get smaller width focus spot and longer depth of focus by shaping a focused Gaussian beam. The important feature of the filters is their simplicty. The apodization can be used for applications such as blue-ray optical data storage, super-REN storage and mastering.
