We describe the aberration correction capabilities of a holographic recording device made of antiferroelectric-phase (7.6/70/30) ion-implanted lead lanthanum zirconate titanate. After a review of holographic aberration correction and a description of the device’s holographic storage mode, we describe the experiment used to store a hologram which reduced approximately ten waves of aberration to a fifth of a wave. Star tests and interferograms demonstrate the accuracy of the correction.
