Thomas Fred Charles, Wallentine Don W, Bero James, Wilson Scott: Acousto-optical intensity control of laser beam. Minnesota Mining And Manufacturing Company, KURTZ Richard E, December 23, 1993: WO/1993/025341

The intensity of a beam of light used to etch concentric servo tracks (12) on a magnetic medium is adjusted with an acousto-optical device to maintain the energy density delivered by the beam substantially constant while the optics (71) which generate the beam move radially of the disk (61).

Thomas Fred Charles, Wallentine Don W, Bero James, Wilson Scott: Steering laser beam while etching optical servo tracks for magnetic disks. Minnesota Mining And Manufacturing Company, KURTZ Richard E, December 23, 1993: WO/1993/026007

A beam of light used to etch servo tracks on a magnetic disk is steered with an acousto-optical device to maintain the beam in concentrical patterns while mechanically moving the optics which generate the beam of light continuously radially of the disk.
