Information capacity of 3-D holographic data storage

  • D. Brady
  • D. Psaltis


Capacities for angular and wavelength multiplexed holographic data storage systems are considered. Limitations due to the spatial resolution of the recording and reconstructing fields and to the holographic recording process are derived.
