This paper describes next generation technologies and future technologies of MO (Magneto-Optical) recording. A proximity optical head with blue laser, high NA lens and magnetic coil was developed. The head is kept at 30 μm height over media, using new optical feedback system. Front surface recording using the head and media well designed for blue laser achieved recording density of 17 Gb/in2, giving 23 GB/120 mm media. As future technologies, an optical flying head was developed with 3 μm flying height. Combining the head and DWDD media, a density of 40 Gb/in2 or 50 GB/120 mm media will be possible. &#les;
