Abstract

We investigate the durability of volume holograms in bismuth tellurite crystals, Bi2TeO5. This material enables self-fixing of holograms during the recording process rendering any further fixing technique unnecessary. Therefore the material overcomes the vulnerability of holograms which is a typical inconvenient property of inorganic storage crystals. The quality reduction of reconstructed analogue and digital data pages under permanent read-out is studied. In terms of digital page-oriented storage, the change of the bit error rate is investigated. For comparison, all experiments are also performed on iron doped lithium niobate crystals, LiNbO3:Fe.
