Holographic Data Storage
Jeff S. Graber
Dr. Eduardo Velasco, Faculty Mentor

Paperless data storage, a very important resource in the world today, is being evolved with both size and speed in mind. Most traditional data storage devices are based off magnetic or conventional optical data storage. However, recently a new replacement technology has developed. Holographic data storage overcomes limitations presented in magnetic and optical data storage; it is capable of recording information throughout an entire volume of recording medium. This makes it possible to record numerous bits of data in the same area and then read through a reference beam at several different angles. Such a technology could very well replace traditional mass-information data systems. I will discuss the underlying ideas and capabilities behind producing and using holographic memory.
