Abstract

The finite-element method is applied to model phase-change recording in a grooved recording stack. A rigorous model for the scattering of a three-dimensional focused spot by a one-dimensional periodic grating is used to determine the absorbed light in a three-dimensional region inside the phase-change layer. The optical model is combined with a three-dimensional thermal model to compute the temperature distribution. Land and groove recording and polarization dependence are studied, and the model is applied to the Blu-ray Disc.
