Paper Abstract

In this paper applications of holography to optical data storage systems are examined. Holography will be considered for use as special purpose optical elements in read/write optical heads of bit serial systems, and as a storage medium for block-oriented data systems. Polarization properties of volume type holographic optical elements are evaluated, and ways of using this characteristic for sensing magneto-optic signals are demonstrated. Application of lithographically formed binary phase diffractive gratings are also discussed. Next, the limits of earlier holographic storage systems are summarized and reexamined with reference to new recording techniques and materials.
