Holographic Data Storage - From Theory to Practical Systems

This book is a primer on the design and building of a holographic data storage system, covering the physics, servo, data channel, recording materials, and optics behind holographic storage, the requirements of a functioning system, and its integration into real-life systems. Later chapters highlight recent developments in holographic storage that have enabled readiness for commercial implementation and discuss the general outlook for the technology, including the transition from professional to consumer markets and the possibilities for mass reproduction.
