An overview of laser microprocessing in data storage industry was presented. Real-time monitoring of laser surface processing was investigated to improve the performance of laser microprocessing technology. Laser nano-etching and nanolithography were realized by atomic force microscopy (AFM) tip-enhanced laser irradiation through combination of laser microprocessing and scanning profile microscope (SPM) techniques.
