Abstract

Lens designs are discussed for page access to data stored in volume optical media. Optimizations of a 4F optical storage system are performed. These optimized designs are evaluated for degree of parallelism achieved, capacity, storage media volume, information storage density, and overall system volume. We find that the primary effect of aberrations is not to reduce memory capacity but to increase system volume resulting in lower overall storage density.
