To achieve 50nm flying height and accuracy tracking motion, it is essential to reduce the whole size of optical flying head (OFH) to improve mechanical and optical performance. With a view to the practical applicability, a novel integrated OFH based on the combination of SIL and objective lens (OL) is proposed, which possesses both high optical performance and reasonable tolerance in assembly. In addition, the fabrication process of this OFH is illustrated in detail. Finally, the main parameters of ABS for OFH slider are presented by means of numerical simulation. The simulation result demonstrates that the flying height of the integrated OFH slider can keep stable from 43nm to 44nm at different radium of optical disk, which can yield high signal/noise ratio optical signal during the read/write motion in near field recording (NFR) system.
Electron tunneling accelerometer has the advantages of high precision, small volume, low consumption and so on. This paper introduces the design on a lateral dual-element Electron Tunneling Accelerometer. The model, structure design, parameters test and fabrication process are provided in detail. The results of analysis and simulation show that the working frequency of sensor could be up to 2 kHz.
Optical Disk Cluster (ODC) drive is the key component of ultra-large capacity optical storage system. The principle of ODC drive is introduced. The measurement and analysis system of dynamic properties of ODC is developed using graphical programming language, LabVIEW, the best software platform of virtual Instruments. The vibration characteristic of ODC is studied. The experiments show that the main reasons of ODC vibration are shaft eccentricity, disalignment of shaft, and inclination of optical disk. As the result, the methods of reducing vibration of optical disk are presented, which can be used to optimizing design of ODC.
In order to meet the development requirements of high density, high capacity and high integration in the field of optical storage, a new scheme for optical recording system is supplied in this paper. At the same time the methods about disc alignment, position and clamping are discussed in details. The principle of flexure hinge is adopted. The results of experiments show that the scheme is feasible, and the setups for optical discs can meet the requirements.
The advanced data storage technology is important to information era. Among all sorts of solutions of high-density storage, near field optical disc technology (NFOD) is high speed and mass storage technology with excellent aptitude and future, and it is the focus of data storage research field in the pioneer technology. Today the research institutes all over the world are speeding their research on NFOD. By using the techniques of solid immersion lens (SIL) and super-low-flying system, it can achieve not only super-high recording density that can be much more higher than traditional optical disks but also the hard disks. In order to improving near-field coupling efficiency of SIL-TO-DISK, the SIL must keep sub micron flying height from the disk, so it is necessary to discuss the research process of real time method to measure SIL-TO-DISK for super-low-flying system. This paper analyses technique foundation and characteristc and its key problem for the flying height measurement, the paper studies several practicing plan of real time measure the clearance even when the SIL-DISK spacing is down to nanometer level for example, relative light intensity method, the capacitance displacement sensors, effective refractive index method for frustrated total reflection, and compare the characteristic and precision of those approach.
