A paraxial solution to the coaxial holographic storage algorithm is proposed based on the scalar diffraction theory and a VOHIL model (volume hologram being an integrator of the lights emitted from elementary light sources), which can give insight into the optical characteristics of the collinear holographic storage system in an effective way, including the point spread function and shift selectivity. The paraxial solution shows that the reference pattern is the key issue in the point spread function. Thus, the bit error rate of the system can be improved by changing the reference pattern. The proposed solution will be useful in the design of a new reference pattern to perform a high-quality readout pattern in the coaxial holographic storage system.

    • "In general, the analysis of the VHS system is based on the following two models. The first is to calculate the point spread function (PSF) through Bragg mismatch [10] [11]; the second is to apply Fresnel transform to simulate the light field in the recording disc and through Born's approach or the method called " volume hologram being an integrator of the lights emitted from elementary light sources " (VOHIL) to calculate the diffraction pattern on the CCD plane [12] [13] [14] [15]. The procedures of the approaches are described in detaisl from Refs. 10 to Refs.15. "

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the design and fabrication of a miniature axial-gap spindle motor for small-form-factor optical storage applications. The motor features a fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) and is characterized by a high mechanical rigidity, excellent dynamic characteristics, and a zero cogging torque. The performance of this FDB motor is evaluated experimentally using a laboratory-built prototype. The results show that the motor has an excellent dynamic response, a small axial repeatable runout, a small tilt angle, a high rotational speed, and a low operating current. Furthermore, with overall dimensions of just 15.5×3.3mm, the FDB motor is around 80% smaller than that presented by the current group in a previous study (Liu et al., J Magn Magn Mater 304:362–364, 2006). Consequently, the proposed motor represents an ideal solution for both existing and emerging miniaturized portable storage device applications.

    ABSTRACT: We use a paraxial approximating solution to calculate the point spread function of the collinear holographic storage system and show that the point spread function can be dramatically enhanced by the reference pattern with random binary phase modulation or random phase modulation.
