Paper Abstract

If considered as a multichannel data-transmission system, a light-recording medium becomes theoretically tractable within a framework encompassing signals, noises, and differential sensitivity. Attention is given within such a framework to the case of space-time light modulators, avoiding the noise generation and distortions associated with the transfer nonlinearity of the object field amplitude; effective holographic sensitivity, dynamic range, and power consumption/data-bit recording are calculated. A holographic recording scheme is optimized for minimum recording light energy.
