Abstract

Single beam electronic crosstalk cancellation by a quadrant cell detector placed in the exit pupil of an optical data storage system is experimentally shown to reduce crosstalk levels by - 10dB and improve jitter by a factor of 2.5 for double density recorded compact disk rewritable media (CD-RW). Simulations show -21 dB reduction in crosstalk levels for CD-RW.
