Abstract

A tapping mode atomic force microscope (AFM) and homemade near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) were used to image and deliver the optical energy to the surface of a cyanine dye (C35H35ClN2O4) layer. AFM images of writing bits on a cyanine dye-coated polycarbonate substrate of a commercial compact disk were obtained. By comparing the images to the bits written by inserting the fiber probe directly into the dye layer, it was found that heating of the metal coating plays an important role in the occurrence of the upraised edge of writing bits observed.
