Paper Abstract

An 800 gigabyte optical memory system has been demonstrated in two laboratory machines, tested in an engineering model, and is in final prototype construction. The system utilizes 5" square slides and a linear motion for read/write processing. An acousto-optic beam deflector is utilized in the optical system as a near diffraction-limited device to provide a scanned laser beam. The system architecture is discussed with particular emphasis on the electro-optical sub-system operation.
