A general strategy for fabricating thick, optically flat photopolymer recording media with high dynamic range that exhibit low levels of recording-induced Bragg detuning for holographic data storage is presented. In particular, media with values as high as 42 in 1-mm-thick formats are obtained. We believe that these results are the first demonstration of a holographic storage medium with a dynamic range of this magnitude. In addition, we report the holographic recording and recovery of high-capacity (480-kbit) digital data pages in these media, further illustrating their data-storage capabilities.
