The cross-talk noise in hologram memory is analyzed with hybrid multiplexing of the Hadamard phase code and wavelength. The minimum wavelength differences required for obtaining a given signal-to-noise ratio are calculated, as well as the optimum angle between the signal and reference beams for this hybrid multiplexing scheme. Hybrid multiplexing with sufficient wavelength difference is a good method for memory extension in the case of limited-pixel-number spatial light modulators.

Worst SNR versus hologram designation number for various kinds of multiplexing. Circles, 32 phase codes with one wavelength; diamonds, four phase codes with ten wavelengths; triangles, one phase code with thirty wavelengths; Δλ =0.5 nm, θ=π/2. (a) Different values of pixel-to-pixel spacing Δy are used for different wavelengths to minimize the cross talk for each recording wavelength. (b) A fixed value of 15 µm is taken as Δy, which is the optimum value for the recording wavelength λ0=500 nm. dB, decibels.
