1960s and early-70s, have made a remarkable comeback in the 1990s. Research in academia and industry
(primarily in the U.S.) has resulted in a number of
impressive laboratory demonstrations, showing that
holographic memories have the storage density, readout
speed, and fidelity required for competitive commercial
