Reference numeral 32 is an objective lens for an optical disc (DVD) 1 corresponding to a wavelength of 660 nm, and has a function capable of focusing on a desired recording position with parallel light even on an optical disc (CD) 1 corresponding to a wavelength of 780 nm. It is an objective lens. Reference numeral 33 denotes an objective lens for an optical disc (Blu-Ray or AOD) 1 corresponding to a wavelength of 405 nm. In the embodiment, the objective lens 32 is arranged at the spindle motor center position, and the objective lens 33 is arranged on the opposite side of the objective lens 32 from the convex lens 30, that is, in the tangential direction with respect to the optical disc 1. Further, the objective lens 33 is configured to be thicker than the objective lens 32. As in the present embodiment, the light emitted from the light source first raises the light having a relatively long wavelength on the first surface 311, and then passes the light having the relatively short wavelength after passing through the first surface 311. In the configuration of rising on the surface 312, that is, in the configuration shown in FIG. 1, the objective lens 32 corresponding to the long wavelength is arranged on each laser unit 81, 101 side, and the objective lens 33 is provided at a position farther than the objective lens 32. By doing so, it is possible to lengthen the path for the light to be routed until it is relatively incident on the rising prism 31, thereby facilitating optical design.
[0052]
However, the first surface 311 surface of the rising prism 31 transmits the laser light 106 having a wavelength of 660 nm and 780 nm, reflects the laser light 84 having a wavelength of 405 nm, and the second surface 312 surface reflects the laser light 106 having a wavelength of 660 nm and 780 nm. The objective lens 33 can be configured even if it is arranged on the laser side with respect to the objective lens 32 as long as it reflects the light (see FIGS. 11 and 12). With such a configuration, although the size of the objective lens holding cylinder is somewhat increased, the gap between the tracking coil 39 and the tracking magnet 47 can be widened. As a result, the size of at least one of the tracking coil 39 and the tracking magnet 47 is increased. Since the driving force for driving the objective lenses 32 and 33 can be sufficiently obtained, high-speed access and the like can be realized.

[0054]

[0055]
In FIG. 9, reference numeral 36 denotes an objective lens holding cylinder that can fix the objective lenses 32 and 33, the λ / 4 plate-attached aperture filter 34, and the λ / 4 plate 35 by means such as adhesion.
[0056]
Reference numerals 36 and 37 denote focus coils, respectively, which are wound in a substantially ring shape. Reference numerals 38 and 39 denote tracking coils which are each wound in a substantially ring shape in the same manner as the focus coils 36 and 37. These focus coils 36 and 37 and tracking coils 38 and 39 are also fixed to the objective lens holding cylinder 36 with an adhesive or the like. Reference numerals 40 and 41 denote suspension wires. The suspension wires 40 and 41 connect the objective lens holding cylinder 36 and the suspension holder 42, and at least the objective lens holding cylinder 36 is displaced with respect to the suspension holder 42 within a predetermined range. It is possible. Both end portions of the suspension wires 40 and 41 are fixed to the objective lens holding cylinder 36 and the suspension holder 42 by insert molding, respectively. The focus coils 36 and 37 are fixed to the suspension wire 40 by soldering or the like, and the tracking coil 38 and the tracking coil 39 are also electrically connected to the suspension wire 41 by soldering or the like. The suspension wire 40 is preferably composed of six or more round wires or leaf springs so that electric power can be supplied to each of the focus coils 36 and 37 and the tracking coils 38 and 39 joined in series. Yes.
[0057]
In order to fix the suspension holder 41 with solder or the like, the flexible substrate 43 is fixed by bonding or the like. Reference numerals 44 and 45 denote focus magnets which are configured to have a smaller magnet width direction (tracking direction) than the focus coils 36 and 37. The focus magnet 44 on the outer peripheral side of the optical disc 1 with respect to the coil center position of the focus coils 36 and 37 has an outer periphery. The focus magnet 45 on the inner circumference side of the optical disc 1 is arranged to face the inner circumference. Reference numerals 46 and 47 denote tracking magnets which are arranged to face the tracking coils 38 and 39. The focus magnets 44 and 45 are divided in the focus direction, and the tracking magnets 46 and 47 are each divided in the tracking direction. One pole faces the substantially ring-shaped piece of the focus coils 36 and 37 and the tracking coils 38 and 39. The other pole side is disposed so as to face the other part of the substantially ring shape in the focus coils 36 and 37 and the tracking coils 38 and 39. At this time, the focus magnets 44 and 45 and the magnetic yoke 48 constitute a focus magnetic circuit, and the tracking magnets 46 and 47 and the magnetic yoke 48 constitute a tracking magnetic circuit, respectively. The focus coils 36, 37, A configuration in which one tracking coil 38, 39 is provided in each tracking magnetic circuit can be realized, and each coil can be controlled independently by energizing each coil. In the present embodiment, the focus coils 36 and 37 are controlled independently. However, the focus coils 36 and 37 and the tracking coils 38 and 39 may all be controlled independently. In this case, at least eight suspension wires 40 and 41 are required as a whole, but if only one of the pairs, for example, focus coils 36 and 37 is controlled independently, at least six suspension wires 40 and 41 are sufficient. .
[0058]
By the way, the focus magnets 44 and 45 and the tracking magnets 46 and 47 are formed by separating the magnets each having a single magnetic pole without bonding the magnets to multi-pole magnets when divided. A neutral zone occurring between them can be suppressed, and deterioration of magnetic circuit characteristics accompanying the focus shift and tracking shift of each coil can be suppressed to a minimum. In order to control a high-density optical disk with a narrow tilt margin, it is essential to attach a single-pole magnet in this way in order to improve accuracy.
[0059]
In order to reduce the size of the suspension wires 40 and 41 and reduce the resonance in the buckling direction of the suspension wires 40 and 41, tension is applied in an inverted C shape. The magnetic yoke 48 functions as a magnetic yoke for the focus magnets 44 and 45 and the tracking magnets 46 and 47 from the magnetic surface, and holds and fixes the suspension holder 42 from the structural surface. It has a function and is also used to fix the suspension holder 42 such as an adhesive.

[0060]
Reference numeral 49 denotes a laser driver which operates to emit a semiconductor laser having a wavelength of 780 nm and a wavelength of 660 nm built in the laser unit 101, and further has a function of superimposing each wavelength for noise reduction. .

Reference numeral 50 denotes a laser driver which operates to emit a semiconductor laser having a wavelength of 405 nm built in the laser unit 81 and has a function of superimposing each wavelength for noise reduction. Further, similarly to the laser driver 49, it is configured to be in contact with the carriage 4 or a cover metal plate (not shown) disposed above and below the carriage so that heat can be effectively radiated.
[0061]
Next, the optical configuration of the optical pickup in the present embodiment will be described.
[0062]
First, the wavelength 405 nm will be described.
[0063]
The divergent laser beam 84 having a wavelength of 405 nm emitted from the laser unit 81 is substantially parallel by the collimator lens 11, passes through the beam shaping prism 12, and passes through the critical angle prism 13 to have an aberration correction mirror 14 having a reflection mirror function. To reach. The laser beam 84 reflected from the aberration correction mirror 14 enters the critical angle prism 13 again. At this time, the incident light and the reflected light entering the aberration correction mirror 14 are arranged so as to have an inclination of several degrees before and after the critical angle prism 13. A gap is provided between the beam shaping prism 12 and the critical angle prism 13. With this configuration, it becomes possible to efficiently separate the laser beam 84 having a wavelength of 405 nm using the critical angle. Further, it is possible to improve the light transmission efficiency by means such as a dielectric multilayer film on both surfaces of the beam shaping prism 12 and the critical angle prism 13 facing the gap. Next, the laser beam 84 emitted from the critical angle prism 13 passes through the beam splitter 27, enters the rising prism 31 through the concave lens 29 and the convex lens 30, passes through the first surface 311, and passes through the second surface. Reflected at 312. The reflected laser beam 84 passes through the λ / 4 plate and becomes circularly polarized light, and is condensed by the objective lens 33 to form a light spot on the optical disc 1. The laser beam 84 returning from the optical disk 1 passes in the opposite direction to the forward path and passes through the λ / 4 plate, so that it is polarized in a polarization direction of about 90 degrees from the forward path, and finally the beam splitter in the prism 83. And is guided to the light receiving element 82a in the light receiving element portion 82 by a diffraction grating formed between the light receiving element portion 82 and at least a spherical aberration error signal. At the wavelength of 405 nm, since the wavelength is shorter than the conventional one, the spherical aberration generated when the thickness of the protective layer of the optical disk 1 is changed becomes large, and the recording / reproducing quality is greatly impaired. Therefore, the generated spherical aberration can be suppressed by driving the aberration correction mirror 14 in accordance with the above-described spherical aberration detection signal and slightly changing the reflecting surface into a spherical surface. Further, this time, the spherical aberration is corrected by using the aberration correction mirror 14, but it is also possible to correct the spherical aberration by moving at least one of the concave lens 29 or the convex lens 30 in the optical axis direction. is there.
[0064]
Next, the wavelength 660 nm will be described. A laser beam 106 having a wavelength of 660 nm emitted from the laser diode 103 of the laser unit 101 passes through a beam combiner 109 and a diffraction grating forming three beams dedicated to 660 nm, and passes through a prism 105 and a polarization hologram diffraction grating 107 that separate the beams. Thus, the light beam is substantially parallel by the collimator lens 28, reflected by the beam splitter 27, changes its direction, enters the rising prism 31 through the concave lens 29 and the convex lens 30, and is reflected by the first surface 311. The reflected laser beam 106 passes through the λ / 4 plate and becomes circularly polarized light, and is condensed by the objective lens 32 to form a light spot on the optical disc 1. At this time, the polarization hologram diffraction grating 107 does not act on the P wave of the forward light, but acts on the S wave of the backward path. The laser beam 106 returning from the optical disk 1 passes in the opposite direction to the outward path and passes through the λ / 4 plate, so that it is polarized in a polarization direction of about 90 degrees with respect to the outward path. The laser beam 106 diffracted into light is finally separated by a beam splitter in the prism 105 and guided to a photodetector in the light receiving element 102.
[0065]
Next, the wavelength 780 nm will be described. A laser beam 106 having a wavelength of 780 nm emitted from the laser diode 104 of the laser unit 101 passes through a diffraction grating that is diffracted by a beam combiner 109 and forms three beams dedicated to 780 nm, and a prism 105 and a polarization hologram diffraction grating 107 that separate the beams. Through the collimating lens 28, the light is reflected by the beam splitter 27, changes its direction, enters the rising prism 31 through the concave lens 29 and the convex lens 30, and is reflected by the first surface 311. The reflected laser beam 106 passes through the λ / 4 plate-attached aperture filter 34, becomes circularly polarized light and has a desired numerical aperture, and is condensed by the objective lens 32 to form a light spot on the optical disk 1. At this time, the polarization hologram diffraction grating 107 hardly affects the wavelength 780 nm. The laser beam 106 returning from the optical disk 1 passes in the opposite direction to the forward path and passes through the λ / 4 plate, so that it is polarized in a polarization direction of about 90 degrees from the forward path, and finally the beam splitter in the prism 105. And is guided to a photodetector in the light receiving element 102 by a diffraction grating formed between the light receiving element 102 and the light receiving element 102.
[0066]
By adopting such an optical configuration, the aberration correcting mirror 14 and the collimating lens 11 for correcting the spherical aberration are disposed between the integrated element 8 and the beam expander function configured by the concave lens 29 and the convex lens 30. Since the size of the aberration correction mirror 14 can be reduced, and the gap between the collimating lenses 11 and 28 and the integrated elements 8 and 10 can be shortened, the optical pickup 3 can be reduced in size and thickness. .
[0067]
Next, the operation of the optical pickup actuator movable part in the present embodiment will be described. Electric power is supplied from a power source (not shown) to the focus coils A36 and B37 and the tracking coils A38 and B39 through the flexible substrate 43 attached to the suspension holder 42 and the suspension wires 40 and 41 connected thereto. At least six suspension wires 40 and 41 are provided in total, two of which are connected to the tracking coils A38 and B39 provided in series, and two of the remaining four are connected to the focus coil A36. The remaining two are connected to the focus coil B37. Thus, the energization control of the focus coils A36 and B37 can be performed independently.
[0068]
When a current is passed through the focus coil 36 and the focus coil 37 in the positive direction (or negative direction), the focus direction is determined from the positional relationship between the focus coils 36 and 37 and the focus magnets 44 and 45 and the polarity of the magnetic poles divided into two. A focus magnetic circuit that can be moved is formed, and the focus direction can be controlled in accordance with the direction and amount of current flow. Next, when a current is passed through the tracking coils 38 and 39 in the positive direction (or negative direction), the tracking coil 38 and 39 and the tracking magnets 46 and 47 are arranged in the tracking direction due to the positional relationship between the tracking coils 38 and 39 and the polarity of the magnetic poles divided into two. A tracking magnetic circuit that can be moved is formed, and the tracking direction can be controlled.
[0069]
By the way, in the embodiment, as described above, the current can flow independently through the focus coil 36 and the focus coil 37. Accordingly, when the direction of the current flowing in one coil is reversed, a force in the direction approaching the optical disc 1 acts on the focus coil 36 and a force acts on the focus coil 37 in a direction away from the optical disc 1. As a result, due to the contradicting forces, a moment that rotates in the radial direction is generated in the optical pickup actuator movable portion, and tilts to a position where the forces with the torsional moments acting on the six suspension wires 40 and 41 are balanced. The tilt direction can be controlled in accordance with the direction and amount of flow through the focus coil 36 and the focus coil 37.
[0070]
The objective lenses 32 and 33 will be described below.
[0071]
As shown in FIG. 10, when the maximum thickness of the objective lens 32 is t1, and the maximum thickness of the objective lens 33 is t2, it is preferable that t2 / t1 = 1.05 to 3.60. That is, if t2 / t1 is smaller than 1.05, the diameter of the objective lens 33 must be increased, the optical pickup 3 becomes larger, and the size cannot be reduced, and t2 / t1 is 3.60. If it is larger, the thickness of the objective lens 33 becomes too thick and is not suitable for thinning.
[0072]
In this way, by configuring the objective lens 33 corresponding to the short wavelength light to be thicker than the long wavelength objective lens 32, it is possible to reduce the size of the apparatus and to define the ratio of the thicknesses. In particular, it is possible to reduce the thickness and size of the apparatus.
[0073]
Next, the amount of protrusion of the objective lens 33 that protrudes closer to the optical disc 1 than the objective lens 32 will be described. When the thickness of the optical disk device is 13 mm or less, the distance between the objective lenses 32 and 33 and the mounted optical disk 1 becomes very narrow. Therefore, when the objective lens 32 is considered as a reference, it has been found that the protrusion amount t3 shown in FIG. 10 is preferably 0.05 mm to 0.62 mm. The amount of protrusion is represented by the difference between the maximum protruding portion of the objective lens 32 on the side where the optical disc 1 is mounted and the maximum protruding portion of the objective lens 33 on the side where the optical disc 1 is mounted. If t3 is smaller than 0.05 mm, the lens diameter of one of the objective lenses 32 and 33 must be increased, which is not suitable for miniaturization, and if t3 protrudes larger than 0.62 mm, the optical disc 1 The probability of contact with is increased.
[0074]
In this way, by projecting the objective lens 33 corresponding to light having a short wavelength as described above, it is possible to reduce the size or improve the reliability.
[0075]
Further, as shown in FIG. 1, the center of the objective lens 32 corresponding to the long wavelength is substantially coincided with the center line M passing through the center of the spindle motor 2 along the moving direction L of the carriage 4. It is preferable. That is, with such a configuration, it is possible to employ a 3-beam DPP (differential push-pull) system that has the most proven record in the conventional light detection system.
[0076]
The diameter of the spot of light incident on the objective lenses 32 and 33 will be described.
[0077]
As shown in FIG. 2, when the diameter of the light spot incident on the objective lens 32 is t4 and the diameter of the light spot incident on the objective lens 33 is t5, the size is reduced by satisfying the relationship of t5 ≦ t4. It's easy to do. In consideration of lens design and the like, it is preferable that t5 / t4 = 0.4 to 1.0. If t5 / t4 is smaller than 0.4, the objective lens 33 is difficult to manufacture, and the objective lens 32 becomes large and unsuitable for downsizing. If t5 / t4 is larger than 1.0, the thickness of the objective lens 33 becomes too thick. Therefore, it is not suitable for downsizing.
[0078]
