Abstract

The simulation of near-field effects in high density optical disk data storage is discussed. Plane wave expansion methods for classical diffraction theory equations, coupled with the direct numerical solution of Maxwell's equations were used for simulation. Finite difference time domain (FDTD) methods based on the local grid refinement approach allowed improved computational efficiency for simulations.
