Paper Abstract

We explain and compare two different methods (two-step and two-center recording) for gated holographic recording in lithium niobate crystals. We first compare the holographic recording performance of the two schemes based on the experimental results published in the literature. Then, we use a general model to compare the essential physics of the two methods theoretically, and we show that two-center recording has better performance in low light intensities. Global optimization of two-center recording as well as a unique feature of gated holography (i.e., localized recording) for new applications will also be discussed.
