Stability Enhancement of Super-RENS Readout Signal

  • Published : 2007.09.01


We report the readout stability improvement results of super-resolution near field structure (Super-RENS) writeonce read-many (WORM) disk at a blue laser optical system. (Laser wavelength 405nm, numerical aperture 0.85) By using diffusion barrier structure (GeSbTe sandwiched by GeN) and high transition temperature recording material ($BaTiO_3$), material diffusion of phase change layer and recording mark degradation were greatly improved during high power (Pr=2.0mW) readout process up to $1{\times}10^5$ times.
