Abstract

Scattering effects in a two-photon optical data storage system are numerically studied. Surface scattering analysis with a scalar, beam propagation model is performed. We analyze the problem by modeling scattering from randomly varying surfaces and also by Fourier surface decomposition. Scattering induced by propagation through multiple pages of randomly recorded data marks is also studied with a hybrid finite-difference-time-domain/angular-spectrum model. Both surface and bulk scattering are shown to influence the spatial properties of the optical beam. Results and some possible implications are presented.
