Abstract

Numerical analyses were conducted to simulate the effects of different Gaussian-weighted beams and disk geometries on the read-out signal cross talk of land and groove recording of phase-change optical disk systems. The optimized groove depth, which yields a minimum cross-talk noise, differs for different Gaussian-weighted beams and different track pitches. This beam profile dependence of the optimum groove depth is undesirable for practical application of this technique, because different optical systems may have different beam profiles at the lens aperture plane. It is found that this effect can be reduced to a certain extent by introduction of an appropriate shading band filter.
