Abstract

We describe and demonstrate a volume holographic storage system in which a phase-conjugate object beam is reconstructed by the same reference beam that was used for recording. An intermediate hologram is used as a temporary buffer, recorded with its own reference beam and the data-bearing object beam. Reading this buffer hologram with the phase conjugate of its reference beam reconstructs the phase conjugate of the object beam, which can then be recorded into the desired volume hologram for long-term storage. This method combines the immunity to lens aberrations provided by phase-conjugate readout with the simplicity of using the same multiplexed reference beam for both recording and readout. Only a single pair of phase-conjugate reference beams is required. Experimental results are shown with a single LiNbO3:Fe crystal used as both buffer and storage holograms and a self-pumped phase-conjugate mirror in BaTiO3 that provides the pair of phase-conjugate reference beams.

Holographic system for multiplexing phase-conjugate holograms. A temporary buffer hologram is recorded by an object beam containing the data from SLM and a reference beam . This hologram is illuminated with phase-conjugate beam , reconstructing the phase conjugate of the original object beam, which is then stored permanently with spatial- and angle-multiplexed reference beam .
