Abstract

The crystallization and amorphization of Te–As–Ge films with GaAs injection lasers has been investigated. Power density measurements for crystallization and amorphization are presented, and a reverse-mode write–read–erase cycle is demonstrated. The results show that direct bit storage is feasible with an injection laser–chalcogenide film system.
