High-Performance Polymer Recording Materials for Holographic Data Storage


Holographic storage is considered a promising successor to currently available optical storage technologies. Enabling significant gains in both data transfer rates and storage densities, holographic storage and its capabilities have gained a great deal of recent attention.One of the primary challenges in the advancement of holographic storage has been the development of suitable recording materials.In this article, we provide a brief introduction to holographic storage and its potential advantages over current technologies, outline the requirements for recording materials, and survey candidate materials.We end by highlighting recent progress in photopolymer materials that has produced materials that satisfy the requirements for holographic storage and have enabled significant demonstrations of the viability of this technology.
