Volumetric media have great potential for meeting future optical data storage demands, but homogeneous media lack internal features for tracking. A novel method of tracking inside homogeneous media is described that uses external reference tracks attached to the media. Several possible configurations for implementing the "slave-servo" concept are described and compared. An optical design for the most promising configuration is presented. This desing utilizes a diffractive optical element for dispersion compensation. Modeling describes the limits of device performance and alignment. Early prototype results are presented.
