Abstract

Polytopic multiplexing is a new method of overlapping holograms that, when combined with other multiplexing techniques, can increase the capacity of a volume holographic data storage system by more than a factor of 10. This is because the method makes possible the effective utilization of thick media. An experimental demonstration of this technique is also presented.
