Holographic devices are expected to have a much larger capacity than conventional optical storage systems such as CD, DVD or blue diode laser based HD-DVD or BD. Recent developments in the field of dedicated recording materials and advanced optical enabling technologies are now opening the door for the realization of commercial products. One of the major technical challenges is the development of a robust and reliable system concept, which allows easy exchangeability of the medium. We developed a holographic tester system with common paths for the reference and the signal beams based on a single mode blue laser diode and a commercial CMOS detector. The system will be used to evaluate various multiplexing schemes, to investigate the influence of system tolerances on the reading performance and to estimate fundamental system limitations.
