    • Abstract


      Recyclable holographic (optical) storage in inorganic materials is nowadays possible due to the advent of laser. Various performance parameters of the state-of-the-art of optical storage are discussed in detail with reference to the well-established case of ferroelectric lithium niobate (LiNbO3). Various physicochemical techniques are employed in understanding the microscopic mechanisms responsible for optical storage in LiNbO3. A short summary of other inorganic materials capable of holographic storage is also presented.
