Abstract:

The modulation of the irradiance in the exit pupil of an optical data storage scanning system is described by analyzing the behavior of scan-dependent interference fringes. These fringes are grouped into three independent irradiance components. The variation of the exit pupil irradiance pattern as a function of groove depth is discussed.
