Paper Abstract

We present the design, development and characterization of MEMPLEX - a new photoreactive polymer that has widespread applications in holographic information storage and processing technology. The new polymer is characterized by its large M/# and, thus, large capacity for data storage (>Thit/5 inch diameter disk), good sensitivity in the visible, negligible shrinkage during recording, no wet chemical processing, and virtually unlimited storage time of information. MEMPLEX is inexpensive, completely self-supporting, can be fabricated to any size as required by the application, has excellent optical quality, is resistant to most chemicals, and has long shelf-life.
