Abstract

A dual-wavelength optical head, believed to be new in design, for 0.6- and 1.2-mm-thick-substrate optical disks was developed by use of 650- and 780-nm-wavelength light and a wavelength-selective filter, which reduces the spherical aberration that is due to the difference in substrate thicknesses and restricts the numerical aperture for 780-nm-wavelength light. According to this configuration, both high light power efficiency and wide image field characteristics are obtained, which are suitable not only for read-only but also for recordable or rewritable optical disk systems. A reading operation for a digital video disc and for a compact disc and a recording operation for a phase change optical disk were successfully demonstrated.
