Abstract

We demonstrate the storage of 1000 holograms in a memory architecture that makes use of different wavelengths for recording and readout to reduce the grating decay while retrieving data. Bragg-mismatch problems from the use of two wavelengths are minimized through recording in the image plane and using thin crystals. Peristrophic multiplexing can be combined with angle multiplexing to counter the poorer angular selectivity of thin crystals. Dark conductivity reduces the effectiveness of the dual-wavelength method for nonvolatile readout, and constraints on the usable pixel sizes limit this method to moderate storage densities.
