Paper Abstract

The prospect of high density three-dimensional optical memory has encouraged development efforts. Research has focused on storing Bragg angle multiplexed hologram page storage and two-photon bit storage volumes. Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has investigated alternative multilayer 3-D memories based on a vectorial organic recording medium. POC's approach incorporates polarization vector switching to independently address layers in the third dimension. POC's methodology has been to fully characterize the molecular and bulk properties of the vectorial organic recording medium, optimize material performance for memory applications including cache and integrated waveguide, and investigate suitable three- dimensional optical memory storage architectures. Here we report on a promising architecture which we have recently demonstrated.
