Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7738736.
A method for holographic storage data recovery in a holographic storage system is presented. One exemplary method includes detecting a stored image at a detector such that the image is oversampled. A relationship is determined between a location of the detected image and a location of the source image. Pixel information associated with the source image may be obtained from the detected image based on a fractional delay filter. In one example, the image may be oversampled by magnifying the detected image at the detector and/or having a detector with pixel sizes and spacing less than the image pixel size. Further, coefficients of the fractional delay filter may be determined, at least in part, on magnification and shift information of the image based on known registration marks.
