Abstract : Results of a comprehensive study of spectral holography (the interaction of lasers with frequency-selective recording materials) is reported. New technologies, potentially capable of dramatically outperforming existing ones, have been identified and experimentally demonstrated. Impacted areas involve optical data storage, bit-rate conversion, and routing. The world's highest areal density x data bandwidth memory was demonstrated.
