Abstract
We propose a system that combines both the multilayer storage and the wavelength multiplexing afforded by using volume holograms to enhance by several fold, the optical data storage capacity of compact discs. The storage capacity and interchannel crosstalk are analyzed as a function of data-channel wavelength separation and reading beam spot size. A storage capacity of 9.7 Gbytes per disc is provided when 6 layers and 6 wavelengths are used.
