Nanophotonics and application to future storage technology (Invited Paper)
Paper TD05-1
Author(s): Motoichi Ohtsu, Univ. of Tokyo (Japan)

This paper describes the principles and history of nanophotonics, which utilizes the energy transfer of a virtual exciton杙olariton. The true nature of this field of study is to realize "qualitative innovation" in optical technology, including photonic devices, fabrications, and information storage. Application to optical near-field magnetic-hybrid recording at a 1-Tb/inch2 density is reviewed. For the future development of storage technology, two directions are proposed: one follows the technical roadmap to increase the storage density to 1-Pb/inch2 utilizing nanophotonic devices, while the other deviates from the roadmap. High-security information transfer is one example of the latter.
Femtosecond Lasers for Optical Memory


Can future storage technologies benefit from existing or emerging nano-tools and techniques? (Invited Paper)
Paper TD05-2
Author(s): Masud Mansuripur, College of Optical Sciences/The Univ. of Arizona

Certain ideas and techniques are being developed outside the field of optical/magnetic/electronic recording, but the storage community could benefit from these developments once we become sufficiently familiar with the new concepts and methodologies. Aside from nano-photonics, which is the subject of Professor Ohtsu's keynote address, developments in the areas of bio-photonics, fluorescence microscopy, quantum-dots, optical tweezers, micro- and nano-fluidic systems, femto-second fiber lasers, etc., have the potential to influence future generations of data storage systems.

This invited paper describes our latest work towards fully describing the operation of C-aperture light sources and using these sources to write nano-sized marks on optical recording media. During the last decade we have developed and refined a highly efficient nano-sized aperture that, under ideal conditions, increases power throughput by three orders of magnitude compared with round and square apertures producing the same optical spot size.

The challenges of heat assisted magnetic recording head integration (Invited Paper)
Paper TD05-23
Author(s): Cal Hardie, Duane C. Karns, William A. Challener, N. J. Gokemeijer, Tim Rausch, Michael A. Seigler, Edward C. Gage, Seagate Technology LLC

The explosion of digital content has created a global demand for storage products that will only increase as the world becomes more digitally oriented and connected. This ever increasing demand for storage capacity has placed significant challenges on the magnetic recording industry. To extend recording densities to beyond 1Tb/in2, the industry must find solutions to the superparamagnetic limit which imposes a signal-to-noise ratio, thermal stability, and writability tradeoff. Heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) is a technology for achieving these high areal densities. A successful integration of the HAMR technology will be shown. This integration process is compatible with existing thin film magnetic recording fabrication which includes thin film wafer process, slider lapping, and head/gimbal assembly. A demonstration of 200Gb/in2 areal density will be shown as well as a path to increase the areal density capability of HAMR using Near Field Transducer (NFT) technology.

Applications of ODS technology to lithography (Invited Paper)
Paper TD05-40
Author(s): Thomas D. Milster, College of Optical Sciences/The Univ. of Arizona

As demands for ever smaller and more powerful computer circuits increase, technologists are planning to decrease the minimum feature size fabricated on Si wafers to less than 16 nm by 2020. This Herculean task may be accomplished with exposure tools operating at the soft x-ray wavelength of 13.5 nm and advanced processing techniques. A significant problem with this plan is that, as the minimum feature size decreases, the cost of the exposure and processing systems increases. This paper addresses the possibility of applying optical data storage (ODS) technology to lithographic exposure, in order to reduce cost of the components and provide a path for fabrication of 10 nm features.

Material consumption and crosstalk characteristics of different holographic storage concepts
Paper TD05-52
Author(s): Frank Przygodda, Joachim Knittel, Oliver Malki, Heiko Trautner, Hartmut Richter, Deutsche Thomson-Brandt GmbH (Germany)

Three holographic data storage concepts (plane wave, collinear, counter-propagating beam setup) are investigated by numerical simulations regarding their material consumption, diffraction efficiency and crosstalk characteristics.

Wobble alignment for angularly multiplexed holograms
Paper TD05-53
Author(s): Mark R. Ayres, Alan C. Hoskins, Paul C. Smith, John Kane, InPhase Technologies Inc.

A method for dynamic alignment adjustment in an angle-multiplexed holographic storage system is presented. A wobble servo corrects readout beam angle, pitch, and wavelength.

Three-dimensional Fourier optics analysis of holographic optical data storage systems
Paper TD05-54
Author(s): George Barbastathis, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

A theoretical method for analysis and design of holographic memories is presented. The memory is expressed as a 3D pupil in an imaging system. It is shown how practical memory performance metrics, such as interpage---intrapage crosstalk and defocus tolerance, can be understood and optimized using this approach.

Intra-signal modulation in holographic memories
Paper TD05-55
Author(s): Mark R. Ayres, InPhase Technologies Inc.; Robert R. McLeod, Univ. of Colorado at Boulder

An analysis of intra-signal noise in volume holography is presented. Estimates of the coherent and incoherent limiting cases are derived for ASK and PSK modulation.

Sparse modulation codes for channel with media saturation
Paper TD05-56
Author(s): Lakshmi D. Ramamoorthy, Vijayakumar Bhagavatula, Carnegie Mellon Univ.

Channel model with media saturation was built to simulate data pages. We observed a trade off between the relative write transfer rates and bit error rate.

Optical super-resolution through super-oscillations (Invited Paper)
Paper TD05-57
Author(s): Nikolay I. Zheludev, Univ. of Southampton (United Kingdom)

Invited: To achieve optical sub-wavelength concentrations of light beyond the near-field, the concept of super-oscillations recently flagged by Berry and Popescu, and demonstrated by our group using a quasi-crystal array of holes, provides a viable and less technologically challenging alternative to the approach based on negative-index super-lenses exploiting recovery of the evanescent fields.

Comparison of a semiconductor and a phase-change material for application in a super-resolution ROM disk
Paper TD05-58
Author(s): Gael Pilard, Larisa Pacearescu, Herbert Hoelzemann, Christophe F閞y, Deutsche Thomson oHG (Germany)

Super-resolution ROM disks based on InSb or AIST were manufactured. A bER of 1e-3 was found with InSb on random patterns having 40nm channel bit length. We demonstrate why the decoding with AIST is not possible.

Super resolution media with significantly high read stability
Paper TD05-59
Author(s): Shuichi Ohkubo, Kazuhiko Aoki, Eiji Kariyada, Daisuke Eto, NEC Corp. (Japan)

Read stability of 1e+6 times has been confirmed with Super-Resolution ROM media with phase change mask layer by developing new protective and inter-face layers.
