Abstract

We describe a digital holographic data storage system that uses in situ thermal fixing to achieve nonvolatile readout. The system was used to store and fix 530 holograms representing 1.7 MB of digital data. The system demonstrates that fixing by heating after recording gives adequate performance for multiplex holography in the perpendicular recording geometry. The postrecording heating procedure is preferred over high-temperature recording in the perpendicular geometry to achieve Bragg matching for the entire signal angular bandwidth.

Calculated index perturbation normalized to modulation depth as a function of grating period for fixing by (a) postcompensation and (b) simultaneous compensation. The dashed curves represent the index modulation corresponding to the unfixed electronic grating. The calculations assume typical parameters for LiNbO3 and a Fe concentration of 2.4 × 1017 cm−3, with equal concentrations of Fe2+ and Fe3+. The concentrations of mobile ions are A, 1019 cm−3; B, 6.0 × 1016 cm−3; C, 1016 cm−3.
