Abstract

In optical disk storage, it is essential to control the sources of noise in order to achieve high signal to noise ratio (SNR) and eventually a low byte error rate. Separate various noises for phase change (PC) disks are analyzed in detail. In PC optical data storage, the media noise, which corresponds to about 1% fluctuations of the disk reflection coefficient, is the limiting factor for high SNR if one uses the sum detection technique scheme in the data channel.
