Method For Holographic Storage Using Peristrophic Multiplexing
A method of multiplexing holograms by rotating the material or, equivalently, the recording beams is described. Peristropic (Greek for rotation) multiplexing can be combined with other multiplexing methods to increase the storage density of holographic storage systems. Peristrophic multiplexing is experimentally demonstrated with Du Pont's HRF-150 photopolymer film. We multiplexed a total of 295 holograms in a 38-mum-thick photopolymer film by combining peristrophic multiplexing with angle multiplexing.
