Conventional recording of information by holographic methods, such as Fourier transform holography, does not use efficiently the storage capacity of the recording medium. Employing hybrid electro-optical methods of optimization can substantially increase the affectivity and flexibility of information storage. Examples of algorithms and applications related to pattern recognition, holographic storage and the design of three-dimensional light distributions are described.
