Near-Field Recording Media With Nanocomposite Cover-Layer

A nanocomposite cover-layer and a hybrid cover-layers consisting of a nanocomposite and a dielectric protective film are coated on the media for cover-layer incident near-field recording (NFR). The refractive index of the cover-layer should be matched with the effective numerical aperture of a solid immersion lens (SIL) system. The nanocomposite composed of… CONTINUE READING
