We describe the design and implementation of a high-data-rate high-capacity digital holographic storage disk system. Various system design trade-offs that affect density and data-rate performance are described and analyzed. In the demonstration system that we describe, high-density holographic recording is achieved by use of high-resolution(More)
In this paper, we discuss fundamental issues underlying holographic data storage: grating formation, recording and readout of thick and thin holograms, multiplexing techniques, signal-to-noise ratio considerations, and readout techniques suitable for conventional, phase conjugate, and associative search data retrieval. Next, we consider holographic(More)
Digital holograms have been written in stoichiometric Pr:LiNbO(3) in a two-color recording scheme, demonstrating what is to our knowledge the first all-optical nondestructive readout of digital data. Using writing light at 800nm and gating light at 476 nm, we stored and retrieved 256-kbit digital data pages with a raw bit-error rate BER of <10(-4) .
New fluorescent aluminum oxide crystals (Al2O3:C,Mg) for volumetric optical data storage and imaging applications were investigated. Magnesium impurity and double oxygen vacancy aggregate defects are responsible for the main optical properties of the new material. Spectroscopic investigation of these defects in different charge states was performed. Optical(More)
We present a theoretical model that describes holographic ionic fixing and storage dynamics in photorefractive crystals. Holographic gratings that are based on charge redistribution inevitably decay because of ionic and electronic conduction. Relevant decay rates and transient hologram field expressions are derived. Ionic gratings are partially screened by(More)
We show that the nonlinear index perturbation due to light-induced photovoltaic space-charge field in LiNbO3 can give rise to self-phase matching of second harmonic generation. Increase of the conversion efficiency is accompanied by formation of stationary and nonstationary patterns in the spatial structure of the generated second harmonic. The space-charge(More)
Holographic gratings in photorefractive crystals that are based on charge redistribution inevitably decay as a result of ionic and electronic conduction. Under certain and restricted conditions these decay times can be acceptably long. Relevant decay rates and transient hologram field expressions are derived with special reference to LiNbO(3). Some(More)
Modern technologies offer new opportunities for experimentalists in a variety of research areas of fluid dynamics. Improvements are now possible in the state-of-the-art in precision, dynamic range, reproducibility, motion-control accuracy, data-acquisition rate and information capacity. These improvements are required for understanding complex turbulent(More)
We present a coupled-mode theory of fiber-optic add-drop filters, which involve directional coupling between two fibers combined with fiber Bragg gratings defined inside the coupling region. The analysis self-consistently accounts for both the directional and the reflection coupling, and the propagation constants and structure of the supermodes of the(More)
