Holographic Information Storage

  • H. Kiemle


In modern data processing, magnetic storage is widely applied since many years in various forms which have reached a high degree of perfection. Memories using cores, magnetic drums, discs, cards, and tapes are used, the capacities of which extend over 7 orders of magnitude.
