Title
(EN) OPTICAL PICKUP APPARATUS, HOLDER AND METHOD OF PRODUCING OPTICAL PICKUP APPARATUS
(FR) CAPTEUR OPTIQUE, SON SUPPORT ET PROCEDE D'OBTENTION D'UN CAPTEUR OPTIQUE
Abstract
(EN) An optical pickup apparatus (10) for reading data from a plurality of tracks of an optical disc (34) at the same time by focussing spots (M,...) of each light beam on a plurality of tracks, passing the reflected light beams of spots (M,...) sequentially through an objective lens (30), a collimator lens (28), and a focus adjusting lens (50) in this order, and detecting the reflected light beams with photodiodes (52M,...) disposed along a photodiode light reception plane (68). In order to make each reflected light become incident upon each photodiode (52M,...), a case (72) and a bracket (78) are separated from a chassis (70), and support the focus adjusting lens (50) and the photodiodes (52M,...) respectively. The case (72) and bracket (78) are made so that they can be fixed to the chassis (70) at optional positions in a predetermined area along a direction of the optical axis (66). While the case (72) and bracket (78) are moved along the optical axis (66) direction, positions along the optical axis (66) where the reflected light beams are allowed to enter the photodiodes (52M,...) are searched and the case (72) and bracket (78) are fixed to the chassis (70) at the searched positions.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un capteur optique (10) de lecture de données sur plusieurs des pistes d'un disque optique (34) focalisant les spots (M, ...) des différents faisceaux sur plusieurs pistes, et faisant passer les faisceaux de lumière réfléchie des spots par un objectif (30, par un collimateur (28), et par une lentille de focalisation (50) dans cet ordre, puis détectant le faisceau réfléchi au moyen de photodiodes (52M,...) disposées le long d'un plan de réception de la lumière (68). Pour que chaque lumière réfléchie arrive sur chacune des photodiodes (52M,...), il est prévu un boîtier (72) et une bride (78) séparées du châssis (70) et servant respectivement de support à la lentille de focalisation (50) et aux photodiodes (52M,...). Le boîtier (72) et la bride (78) sont conçus pour pouvoir se fixer au châssis (70) en des positions optionnelles dans une zone prédéterminée le long de l'axe optique (66). Pendant le déplacement du boîtier (72) et de la bride (78) le long de l'axe optique (66), s'effectue une recherche des emplacements des positions situées le long de l'axe optique (66) où les faisceaux réfléchis peuvent atteindre les photodiodes (52M,...), et le boîtier (72) et la bride (78) sont fixés au châssis (70) aux points recherchés.
