Abstract: Abstract Signal deterioration of optical discs depends strongly on the substrate surface roughness. Characteristics of surface roughness of the molded substrate have been studied in order to clarify the transcription mechanism of smooth surfaces in injection molding of polycarbonate resin. When the melt temperature, mold temperature, and injecting rate are low, microscopic flow marks more than 5 nm deep are observed on the surface. These flow marks are formed when the melted resin near the mold wall is cooled…
