Abstract

Parallel read and write of optical disks has traditionally used a static grating for read or a linear array of independent lasers for read and write. Depending on the implementation, these systems suffer from coherent cross talk, excessive space between spots, and an inability to independently track. We show that a dynamic acousto-optic grating can generate multiple parallel read∕write spots on the disk, each of which can be independently modulated and tracked and all of which are incoherent in less that a bit period. The resulting disk pickup can potentially reach gigabit per second transfer rates with only a modest increase in the drive complexity.

(Color online) Trends of commercial and laboratory optical storage systems.[2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] Recent near-field demonstrations have fallen below the expected transfer rate typically due to limitations of the gap servo system, which is still in development. The error bars on the holographic data storage (HDS) points correspond to different read and write transfer rates, which are not necessarily the same in this technology.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Optical layout of the parallel channel AO read∕write (R∕W) head experiment. The inset to the right shows a sample RF spectrum used to drive the AOM, which results in the simulated array of focused spots at the disk plane shown in the left-hand insert. The details of this implementation are presented in Section 3. QWP, quarter-wave plate; PBS, polarizing beam splitter; DPSS, diode-pumped solid-state laser.

(Color online) Utilization of the RF spectrum. Each channel 1 . . . N Chan is allocated a portion of the spectrum δF and adjacent channels are separated center to center by a frequency R δ F .

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(Color online) Detailed RF system configuration. For the single-channel waveform illustrated, an amplitude-modulated sine wave at frequency F IF is created by the Tektronix 2041 arbitrary waveform generator and mixed by the Mini Circuits ZAD-1-1 mixer with a carrier frequency of F LO produced by Hewlett-Packard 8654A signal generator. The signal at frequency F RF is then amplified + 33 dB by a Mini Circuits ZHL-1-2W amplifier and sent to the AOM.

(Color online) Signals for channel 1 as it progresses through the system. (a) The 8 bit input word. This single channel is modulated onto the 290 MHz carrier in (b) and the detected photocurrent at the output plane is shown in (c). When other channels are present, interference cross talk appears on this signal, as shown in (d).

Fig. 6
Fig. 6

(Color online) Detected signals on the central channel for a three-channel, R = 2.5 system. (a) The detected signal when only a single channel is present is shown as a dashed curve and the effect of the interference of adjacent channels is shown as a solid curve. (b) Same data as in (a) but after low-pass filtering. The high-frequency coherent interference has been removed, leaving only an incoherent intensity increase that is equal for both ones and zeros.

Fig. 7

Multibeam radial seek for CLV, CAV, and the AO read∕write head. Note that with the spiral tracks of CLV the seek time is smaller since the head automatically shifts over one track per revolution. The gray line indicates the center of mass of the optical head. The black lines indicate the optical spots on the disk as the head executes the seek.

By adjusting the allocation of bandwidth, the number of spots produced is reconfigurable from the outer diameter (OD) to the inner diameter (ID) to simultaneously maintain the data rate and capacity.
