Paper Abstract

The properties of a pseudodeep hologram are studied. This new term refers here to an inclined thin hologram on which a one-dimensional line object is recorded by a sagittal system of beams. In this case the reconstructed image is read out only within the line corresponding to the object. It is shown that, similar to a deep 3-D hologram, the pseudodeep hologram has high angular and spectral selectivity. A simple graphic method for the construction of the images restored by the pseudodeep hologram is presented. A reference-free hologram has been recorded with the help of such a system. When reading out such a hologram for a part of the object recorded on it, the associative image of the object as a whole was reconstructed. The possibilities of using the pseudodeep hologram for performing different operations are considered, including heteroassociative readout of information by the keys associated with it, recognition of pages of information when illuminating the hologram by the objective wave, and multiple recording of information in the same region of the photographic material. In conclusion, the associative memory scheme in which the information pages are recorded on separate stripes of the pseudodeep hologram with the use of different reference sources as the keys associated with these pages has been considered. The retrieval of the pages is performed by illuminating the entire surface of the hologram with one of the reference sources.
