Abstract

A signal model of a superresolution optical channel would be an efficient tool for developing components of an associated high-density optical disc system. While the behavior of the laser diode, aperture, lens, and detector is properly described, a general mathematical model of the superresolution disc itself is not yet available. However, different approaches have been made to describe the properties of a mask layer, mainly based on temperature- or power-dependent nonlinear effects [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. The main problem of the modeling is that temperature-dependent material properties, such as thermal conductivity and refractive indices, are not known or not accurate enough to allow quantitative predictions. Therefore, it could be useful to define a signal-based or phenomenological model that can be calibrated with experimental data. In this contribution, we developed a complete optical channel model—from non-return-to-zero inverted (NRZI) input to disc readout signal—including the reflectivity of a superresolution disc with InSb used for the mask layer. Model parameters are derived from data measured using a static tester. The model is finally applied to a configuration appropriate for a dynamic superresolution optical drive by moving the focused spot relative to the material.
