Turbo codes, a partial turbo method and a serial turbo method, were experimentally applied to a Domain Wall Displacement Detection (DWDD) disk using a red laser. An effective bit length of 68nm recording was achieved by a partial turbo method with a parity bit rate of 1/17 at a bit error rate (bER) of 4x10-5 using a maximum a-posteriori probability (MAP) decoder, although a bit length of 80nm was the limit of the conventional partial response maximum-likelihood (PRML) method. It is presumable that the limit of the turbo decoding method for a DWDD disk depends on the number of consecutive 2-bit errors that occur with the disappearance of the 2T pattern. A max-log-MAP algorithm was introduced, instead of the usual MAP algorithm, to implement turbo codes in hardware, and an effective bit length of 69nm was achieved at a bER of 4x10-5.
