Specifications of a holographic memory suitable for a capacity of 108 bit are presented. Mathematical calculations show the influence of various system parameters. The storage density is derived as a function of the maximum spatial frequency in the storage material, the aspect ratio of the data input mask, and the crosstalk. In addition, optimizations of the storage density and the optical efficiency of the system are discussed.
