Abstract

We propose a volume holographic data storage scheme that employs counterpropagating reference and image beams and wavelength multiplexing for page differentation. This method is compared with that based on angular multiplexing. A reduction in holographic cross talk is predicted. Further cross-talk reduction that is due to sidelobe suppression is observed in experiments by using photorefractive crystals and the proposed orthogonal data storage.
