A performance analysis of an optical coherent transient optical memory system is presented. The simplest configuration of a coherent transient memory is assumed in which a large block of bits are stored at each laser spot by a single data pulse. The reference and recall beams are assumed to be temporally brief and a photon gated storage medium is assumed. Even with this basic system configuration, the performance predictions yield promising results. With the assumed material parameters, data rates of 5 GHz, data block sizes of 4 X 105, and storage densities up to 4.3 X 1011 bits per cm2 are predicted.
