Abstract

We propose, demonstrate, and analyze the application of phase-conjugate mirrors during the recording of volume holographic memories. Our results show that using phase-conjugate mirrors during recording improves the uniformity of the holographic gratings and increases the recording speed. Theoretical simulations agree with experimental results.
