Paper Abstract

Holographic optical correlator (HOC) is applicable in occasion where the instant search throughout a huge database is demanded. The primary advantage of the HOC is its inherent parallel processing ability and large storage capacity. The HOC’s searching speed is proportional to the storage density. This paper proposes a phase-encoding method in the object beam to increase the storage density. A random phase plate (RPP) is used to encode the phase of the object beam before uploading the data pages to the object beam. By shifting the RPP at a designed interval, the object beam is modulated into an orthogonal object beam to the previous one and a new group of database can be stored. Experimental results verify the proposed method. The maximum storage number of the data pages with a RPP at a fixed position can be as large as 7,500. The crosstalk among different groups of the databases can be unnoticeable. The increase in the storage density of the HOC depends on the number of the orthogonal positions from the different portions of a same RPP.
