Micrometer-sized reflection holograms can be written into a rapidly rotating homogeneous photopolymer disk at the focus of a high-numerical-aperture beam and its retroreflection to implement high-capacity multilayer digital data storage. This retroreflection is generated by an optical system with positive unity magnification to ensure passive alignment of(More)
We describe a digital holographic data storage system that uses in situ thermal fixing to achieve nonvolatile readout. The system was used to store and fix 530 holograms representing 1.7 MB of digital data. The system demonstrates that fixing by heating after recording gives adequate performance for multiplex holography in the perpendicular recording(More)
Three-dimensional optical data storage is demonstrated in an initially homogenous volume by first recording a reflection grating in a holographic photopolymer. This causes the entire volume to be weakly reflecting to a confocal read/write head. Superposition of two or three such gratings with slightly different k-vectors creates a track and layer structure(More)
