Abstract

IN THIS PROGRAM, THE FEASIBILITY OF A NEW GENERATION OF VOLUME HOLOGRAPHIC STRUCTURES WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR ULTRA-HIGH CAPACITY INFORMATION STORAGE. THE STRUCTURES TO BE STUDIED WILL BE COMPOSED OF COHERENTLY COUPLED SUBHOLOGRAMS RECORDED IN PHOTOSENSITIVE MATERIALS. THIS APPROACH WILL ALLOW US TO SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE THICKNESS OF THE STORAGE MEDIUM THUS INCREASING ITS INFORMATION CAPACITY BEYOND THE CURRENT STATE OF THE ART. IN PARTICULAR, BY USING OUR NOVEL APPROACH KNOWN AS COMPOUND COHERENTLY COUPLED (C3) HOLOGRAPHIC STRUCTURES, WE CAN ACHIEVE LARGE-THICKNESS (> 1CM) VOLUME HOLOGRAPHIC STORAGE WITH MERELY CONVENTIONAL PASSIVE MATERIALS.THIS APPROACH WILL ALSO CIRCUMVENT THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH PHOTOFRACTIVE CRYSTALS, AND DRASTICALLY INCREASE THE STORAGE CAPACITY UP TO 10(12) BITS/CM(3).
