Abstract

Defocusing the recording material away from the Fourier plane is necessary to reduce the strong dc component and produce a more homogeneous object beam distribution in the hologram plane in volume holographic digital data-storage systems with amplitude-modulated data pages. However, content- addressable searching with defocused recording results in higher cross-correlation peak intensities. We present a method for performing a faithful content-addressable search in a defocused volume holographic data-storage system. A new dc-filtered content-addressable search method for defocused volume holographic data-storage systems with binary data pages is demonstrated. Both simulation and experimental results are presented. The experimental results show good discrimination capability and confirm the feasibility of the proposed technique.
