Progress is reported on cover-layer incident Near-Field Recording. Very good recording results are obtained on a CuSi disc demonstrating excellent signal quality with modulation corresponding to the full effective numerical aperture of 1.45. Comparing the Near-Field system with Blu-ray Disc further shows that an extension to at least 4 data layers should be possible. In addition, a method for dynamic tilt control is presented. Controlling the tilt between the solid immersion lens and the disc surface improves the system robustness and relaxes media manufacturing tolerances for a roadmap towards 500 GB capacity on a single-sided, 4-layer disc which is protected by a polymer cover-layer.
