Abstract

The advantages and limitations of data storage in holographic materials by implementing a pure phase-encoding method of the reference beam are studied. We show that if deterministic orthogonal binary phase addresses are used, such a system is theoretically able to store as many images as the usual angular multiplexing method. However, we demonstrate that imperfections of available optical components generate optical noise and limit the storage capacity. We propose an improved recording technique to overcome some of these limitations.
