SC371: Limitations Imposed by Signal and Noise in Optical Data Storage
The ultimate limit in data storage is imposed by the available signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in readout. We discuss the sources of signal, noise, and jitter in optical data storage, and examine various techniques for evaluating their contributions to the readout waveform. We also describe methods of improving the signal and reducing the noise as practiced today, as well as promising techniques for future devices. Examples from conventional as well as novel optical storage systems will be used to clarify the underlying concepts.
