Paper Abstract

We have employed new molecular media for volumetric data storage by means of two photon absorption. The optical and spectroscopic characteristics of the materials that are relevant to volumetric optical storage are described. In addition, fatigue characteristics of the photochromic media and substrates used in the fabrication of the storage devices are presented. These include temperature, read/write/erase cycles and space environments such as heavy ion and proton radiation, and heat under vacuum.
