Holographic storage

InPhase Technologies Corp., Longmont, Colo., has received $600,000 from the from the National Imagery and Mapping Agency's National Technology Alliance, managed by the Rosettex Technology & Ventures Group, to develop a holographic storage system. The company predicts that using holography, or the use of interference patterns between two light sources to record data, can result in higher capacity storage systems, such as a postage-stamp-size device that can hold two gigabytes of information. InPhase will draw on previous research it has done. Since 1994, the company has won $3.5 million in government grants to pursue holographic data storage. Optics manufacturer Zygo Corp., Middlefield, Conn., will develop an integrated manufacturing process for high volume production of the systems.
