Abstract

We propose a method for recording a multilevel signal onto optical read-only-memory discs. In this method we use signal processing to generate a multilevel recording signal that satisfies the zero-intersymbol interference condition and the zero-dc condition. The resultant multilevel signal is emboss recorded as the position displacement of groove walls. To play back a disc, push–pull detection and an adaptive equalizer are used. We also introduce feedback to reduce the nonlinear characteristics existing in the recording and playback systems. An experimental disc with 0.6-µm track pitch and 0.28-µm/bit density is made. When a digital versatile disc equivalent optical pickup is used to play back this disc, we confirm that a two-dimensional eye pattern of 16 levels is clearly observed.
