A practical optical system design that takes into account environmental factors is highly desirable. However, it is in general a time-consuming process, which requires a massive iterations of simulations. This is also one of the bottlenecks of the optical design of angular multiplexed holographic data storage systems. To develop a practical method to evaluate the effect of vibrations, a three-dimensional vibration model is developed. The model describes the vibration effect on normalized intensity on the basis of a single statistical figure of merit. Such a single figure of merits is adopted for designing a robust and efficient write strategy, which is applicable to a wide range of vibration waveforms to increase write data transfer rate. Also, optimum optical system parameters are identified. We propose a numerical aperture of 0.572 and a pixel pitch of 6.9 μm which can improve capacity and data transfer rate without sacrificing the vibration margin.
