An optical ROM card system which using an optical probe array generated by Talbot effect was proposed as new robust storage solution. To improve the optical density and to decrease the power consumption of the system, it is very important to make the spot sizes of optical probes smaller as well as to increase the optical efficiency from the light source to optical probes. In this study, a microlens illuminated aperture array for generating high efficiency optical probe away with small beam spot was designed and fabricated using monolithic lithography integration method. The maximum intensity of optical probes of microlens illuminated aperture array increased about 12 times of that of aperture array, and the full width half maximum of the optical probe at Talbot plane generated by microlens illuminated aperture array was

Transactions of the Society of Information Storage Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2006, Pages 7~12
In this paper, vibration suppression of a CD-ROM main base with piezoelectric shunt circuit is studied. Admittance is introduced to predict the performance of piezoelectric shunt damping. Numerical admittance obtained by commercial finite element code, ANSYS, correlates well with experimentally measured one. Multi-mode piezoelectric shunt damping is realized based on the target mode and frequencies obtained by the admittance analysis. Experimental results prove that admittance of the piezoelectric structure is capable of predicting the performance of piezoelectric shunt damping and the vibration of the main base with the piezoelectric patches is reduced effectively.

In this paper, we propose novel optics design for media inside near-field recording(NFR) using hemispherical solid immersion lens(HMS). To obtain strong advantage of data protection and high data capacity simultaneously, HMS based near field optics using aplanatic position of super hemisphere is designed. In this design, to improve small optical tolerance of this aplanatic position, additional aspheric lens surface is added on top of the HMS and it is combined with zoom optics which composed of two single lenses having low numerical aperture(NA). Also, to compensate chromatic aberration which happens seriously in optics using blue laser diode, diffractive optical element is used. Using zoom optics, additional aspheric lens surface, and diffractive optical element together, wavefront aberration and chromatic aberration are effectively reduced in broad range of cover layer thickness and wavelength variation. In addition, in this paper, effect of gap induced aberration is investigated by analyzing different behavior of each TM and TE wave for designed media inside dual-layer NFR optics.

The new multimedia information environment requires smaller optical data storage systems. However, one of the difficulties encountered in designing small form factor(SFF) optical pick-up is to emit the heat which is generated from laser diode(LD). Heat generated at the LD can reduce the optical performance of the system and the lifetime of LD. Therefore, it is important to include the thermal design in the design stage of SFF optical pick-up system for high performance and the longer lifetime of LD, and furthermore, to analyze the thermal characteristics of LD in detail micro heat transfer analysis is necessary. In the present study, micro heat transfer analysis was performed using the finite element method for the
super slim swing-arm type optical pick-up actuator for Blu-ray disk. Two different materials were used for a swing-arm; a double layer polycarbonate/steel structure and a single aluminum structure.

Kim, Jin-Hong ;
Transactions of the Society of Information Storage Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2006, Pages 26~31
Small form factor optical disks for near-field optics using solid immersion lens were developed. Diamond like carbon film and lubricant film were coated on the small form factor optical disk to enhance the head-disk interface(HDI) characteristics. The disk durability properties in terms of HDI phenomena were investigated by drag test. Disks with glass substrates and the lubricant films experienced heat treatment showed more durable characteristics. Coverlayers made of UV resin were uniformly coated by spin coating in which the ski-jump could be removed by adopting outer ring technique

Um, Yo-Han ; Rhim, Yoon-Chul ;
Transactions of the Society of Information Storage Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2006, Pages 32~37
The recording density of a hard disk drive(HDD) has been increased so rapidly that the storage capacity of a commercial HDD for the personal computer already reaches several hundred giga-bytes recently. Many technologies related to the HDD, such as servo, media, actuator dynamics, thermo and fluid dynamics, etc. must be developed together to realize higher recording density. Especially, airflow inside the HDD cavity has been concerned as the rotational speed of the disk increases. Typical problem due to the airflow is the off-track vibration of a head stack assembly(HSA) as the airflow collides with the E-block, suspensions, and sliders, i.e., the flow induced vibration(FIV). This problem is one of the most significant sources of the track mis-registration(TMR) so that it must be resolved. In this study, disk damper shape is modified to minimize the influence of airflow on the HSA. Modified disk dampers, which change the flow field of the inside cavity of a HDD, show good effects not only on the disk vibration but also on the off-track vibration of a HSA. Vibrations of E-block and slider have been measured with LDV and the airflow field inside the HDD cavity has been analyzed with commercial CFD program to verify these effects.

We report the random pattern characteristics of the super resolution near field structure(Super-RENS) write once read-many(WORM) disc at a blue laser optical system(laser wavelength 405nm, numerical aperture 0.85) and the Super-RENS read only memory(ROM) disc at a blue laser optical system(laser wavelength 659nm, numerical aperture 0.65). We used the WORM disc of which carrier-to-noise ratio(CNR) of 75nm is 47dB and ROM disc of which carrier-to-noise ratio(CNR) of 173nm is 45dB. We controlled the equalization(EQ) characteristics and used advanced partial-response maximum likelihood(PRML) technique. We obtained bit error rate(bER) of 10-3 level at 50GB WORM disc and bite error rate of 10-4 level at 50GB level ROM disc. This result shows high feasibility of Super-RENS technology for practical use.

Fractal/angle multiplexing is a
crystal using a X-Y Galvano mirror, and the random access concept in fractal/angle multiplexing are discussed in this paper. First, the brief introduction of the designed holographic digital data storage system is presented. Then, the average access time concept for the storage system is newly defined, and the comparison of the average access time between the holographic storage and a conventional optical disk is performed. Second, the basic simulation and experiment to find the X-Y Galvano mirror dynamics are conducted. From this analysis, we find that the average access time in our HDDS which has 6 degree scan angle is about 5 msec. This result is very high performance when it compared with the average access time of a conventional optical disk. Finally, some recording results using fractal/angle multiplexing are presented, then, the relationship between bit error rate and angle mismatch for the each multiplexing are discussed.

As high performance and high speed have been accomplished by technology of optical disk drive. optical disk drives have gradually high percentage of the market share in market of storage devices. This technology helps to improve the quality of record/reproduction. However, simultaneously it causes various problems in the structural aspect and increases noise largely. Especially at high speed, dominant noise is more influenced by fluid noise than by structure-borne noise. The purpose of this study is that reduce the air-born noise in optical disk drive as it decreases a quantity of flow by using a micro muffler. The micro muffler is a miniaturized muffler. The muffler is used widely by solution to reduce air-borne noise which is generated by flow. According to frequency band of the noise source, it can be applied by muffler of various forms. In this study, we examined the acoustic characteristics of the micro muffler and applied it to reduction of the ODD noise. It could get an excellent noise reduction in high frequency band through the decrease of an inner flow. But it could not get a noise reduction in low frequency band.

This paper proposes a new and simple input prediction method for robust servo system. A robust tracking control system for optical disk drives to reject disk runout was recently proposed based on both Coprime Factorization(CF) and Zero Phase Error Tracking(ZPET) control. The CF control system can be designed simply and systematically. Moreover, this system has not only stability but also robustness to parameter uncertainties and disturbance rejection capability. Since optical disk tracking servo systems can detect only racking error, it was proposed that the reference input signal for ZPET could be estimated from tracking errors. In this paper, we propose a new control structure for the ZPET controller. It requires less memory than the previously proposed method for the reference signal generation. Therefore, it is very effective in runout control. Furthermore, this method can be applied to defective optical disk like surface defects on disk. Numerical simulation and experimental result show the proposed method effective.

In the information storage development, the trend of the storage device is to increase the recording density. Among such an effort, near-field probe recording is spotlighted as a method of high increasing recording density. For the successfully embodiment of storage device, the actuating mechanism of near-field probe is essentially designed. In this paper, we suggest the slider similar with conventional HDD and design the slider using near-field probe for the purpose of applying the slider in order to control gap between probe and media. The most important object of slider design is to guarantee the flying ability and stability. For achievement of these design objects, we perform two step of optimal design process. The media is supposed to model as random displacement, which is only considered roughness of disk surface. The design slider is analyzed with dynamic state in assumed media. At this process, the optimal model is confirmed to stable flying stability.

Transactions of the Society of Information Storage Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2006, Pages 71~78
In this work, we propose a new type of HDD Load/Unload(L/UL) suspension featuring shape memory alloy(SMA). The mechanical and thermal properties of the SMA film with respect to the material phase states are experimentally estimated and the SMA film is carefully integrated to the suspension. In order to obtain the desirable dynamic characteristics of the suspension during L/UL process, the design parameters of the SMA film such as geometric properties are determined by considering the vibration modes of the suspension related to the L/UL performance. After analyzing the modal characteristics of the proposed suspension, L/UL performance is evaluated through L/UL simulation by observing the vibration motion and minimum flying height of the slider during L/UL process.

The next generation of optical storage systems requires higher numerical aperture(NA) objective lenses and shorter wavelength laser in order to improve the unit areal density. A blu-ray technology satisfies a miniaturization and a high capacity which are the requirements of the portable device. In this paper, we analyze the optical performance of hybrid micro lens and do active alignment. The hybrid micro lens is manufactured by using a wafer based fabrication technology. Optical components of hybrid micro lens are evaluated. The measurement of the optical power, the spot size and the wavefront error are performed to evaluate the hybrid micro lens with NA 0.85. Using the measured data, we estimate if the performance of hybrid micro lens corresponds to the designed performance. After the performance of hybrid micro lens is evaluated. the integrated optical pickup and the hybrid micro lens are assembled by active alignment using UV curing and the optical performance of SFFOP is satisfied with BD specifications.

In this study, measurement of thermal conductivity of multilayer thin dielectric film has been conducted via differential
method. Also, verification of differential
method has been accomplished with various proposed criteria. The target film for the measurement is 300 nm thick silicon dioxide which is covered with upper protective layer of various thicknesses. The upper protective layer is inserted between the target film and the heater line for purpose of electrical insulator or anti-oxidation barrier since the target film may be a good electrical conductor or a well-oxidizing material. Since the verification of differential
method has not been conducted yet, we have shown that the measurement of thermal conductivity of thin films with upper protective layer via differential
method is verified to be reliable as long as the proposed preconditions of the samples are satisfied. Experimental results show that the experimental errors tend to increase with aspect ratio between thickness of the upper protective layer and width of the heater line due to heat spreading effect.
