As densities of storage increase in holographic optical memories, ISI becomes an issue calling for efficient equalization techniques. We investigate the use of fixed delay tree-search (FDTS) as an economical alternative to the optimal but often complex solution of maximum likelihood sequence detection. We compare the two techniques from a performance and complexity perspective and show that the former is simpler to implement with limited loss in performance. We adapt fixed-delay tree search with partial response equalization to holographic storage and quantify SNR and density gains obtained from it. The benefit of low- pass codes used with FDTS is also investigated. A cumulative density improvement of 71% is shown to be feasible using FDTS for scatter-limited channels.
