Dynamic speckle multiplexing scheme in volume holographic data storage is proposed, since it offers a novel multiplexing geometry, and could be combined with other schemes to make the full use of the dynamic ranges. In this scheme, a random diffuser is added in the original reference path of the classical 90° setup. In this paper, we analyzed the propagation of the speckle field in the holographic system and established the related theoretical model based on the dynamic speckle auto-correlation function and diffraction theory. We successfully realized the dynamic speckle multiplexing in our experimental system and reached a storage density of 4.6 Gigapixels/cm3 based on the DPL laser source.
