Abstract

A novel multiplexing scheme for dense holographic storage in photorefractive crystals, spatioangular multiplexing, is described in detail. Compared with spatial multiplexing, spatioangular multiplexing increases the storage capacity by fully utilizing the volume of the storage medium. On the other hand, spatioangular multiplexing reduces the number of holograms overlapping any one hologram in a given volume and so increases the diffraction efficiency achievable as compared with angular multiplexing. Using this scheme, we succeeded in storing 756 high-resolution patterns in an Fe:LiNbO3 crystal of volume 1 cm3, with an average diffraction efficiency of 0.5%. This large database is designed for practical use in a novel associative-memory system, called a high-order feedback neural network.
