We demonstrate the recording of 100 planes of digital images in a page-oriented two-photon memory and characterize the images in terms of signal-to-noise ratio and bit error rate. Possible error sources in the recording are discussed, and methods for compensating for some of these effects are presented. Looking at the distributions of the normalized bit intensities, we are able to estimate the minimum achievable bit error rate for this system.
