Paper Abstract

Like other coherent optical storage channels, a volume holographic storage channel is a quadratic channel since its output is a function of the magnitude-square of the light incident on the photo-detector array. Because of such intensity detection, the sign/phase information at the output is destroyed which makes the estimation of the amplitude response difficult. In this paper, we present a new method called modified least mean squares (MLMS) method to estimate the amplitude channel response of a volume holographic storage channel in the presence of quadratic non-linearity. Numerical simulations show that MLMS is very effective in estimating the amplitude response of such channels under even severe loss of sign information.
