Absorption in the phase-change layer of an optical disk located in the near field of a Fabry-Perot laser diode is studied with a combination of finite-difference time domain (FDTD) analysis and a phenomenological laser model that predicts the operational characteristics of a laser diode. Some numerical simulations are performed and results are presented. In addition, the combined FDTD/laser-simulation model is described briefly.
