Phase change recording with an optically switched laser (OSL) head is realised for the first time. This head consists of a 1.3µm wavelength laser diode monolithically integrated with a photodetector (LD-PD) and a flying slider. The lensless OSL head has a minimum power of 18 mW (1 MHz) for writing information on a 1200 rpm, 130 mm diameter, SbTe based alloy disk. The bit shape and crystalized level are uniform and the readout signals are of high quality.
