A novel design for a volume holographic optical disc to reduce radial cross talk is proposed. By adopting a proper spatial filter, the radial cross talk can be reduced and the radial selectivity increases so that the multiplexing capacity can increase effectively. The theory and the corresponding experiment are demonstrated.
