Paper Abstract

The theoretical and numerical difficulties encountered in the analysis of volume holographic information storage and beam shaping are mitigated here by a mathematical procedure to expand the reconstructed wave into a superposition of simple Gaussian beams. The theoretical result is used here to explore some characteristics of bit-oriented holographic storage in volume holograms and the possibility of using volume holograms for beam shaping. Simulation results demonstrate the power of the method, show good correspondence with earlier experimental studies, and provide clues for further developments.
