Abstract

The readout of a page of binary data from a holographic memory utilizing a thick recording material is treated for arbitrary angular positioning of the reference beam. The diffraction efficiency associated with each bit in the data page is calculated. Histograms showing the distribution of the diffracted powers and thus the fidelity of reconstruction for example cases are presented.
