Abstract

We report on the optimization of film thicknesses in a multilayered medium to increase readout signal intensity. The multilayered medium consists of a stack of photosensitive and transparent films, arranged alternately. The thicknesses of the photosensitive and transparent films in the multilayered medium were optimized for a reflection confocal system to read out data by analyzing the propagation of light focused into a multilayered medium.
