Paper Abstract

Multi-wavelength and multilevel (MWML) optical storage with photochromic media is a novel technology that can increase storage capacity and transfer rates significantly. Signal processing and coding methods for the MWML storage channel are introduced in this paper. Two-dimensional codes with parallel detection and equalization are studied to increase storage capacity and combat the crosstalk between different wavelength materials. Multilevel amplitude modulation and M-ary runlength-limited (RLL) codes are described and compared for achieving higher coding capacity. The novel MWML recording technology has the potential to be applicable for the next generation optical data storage.
