Abstract

Two-photon absorption is used for recording bits in the volume of a photochromic plastic media to fully exploit the third dimension. This approach may provide closely spaced layers with negligible interlayer cross talk enabling effective areal storage densities to exceed 100 Gbits/in2. Similarly, parallel readout of many channels can enable linear scaling of data transfer rates. This article summarizes the experimental progress made to data in media and system concepts that use two-photon recording and provides a comparison with more conventional storage approached.
