Summary

The processes for manufacturing holographic recording media represent a balance between the requirements for the desired performance of the drive and the cost and capabilities of the fabrication equipment. Issues associated with fabrication capabilities such as the existing infrastructure and media yield also factor into the strategy for manufacturing. This chapter discusses the overall flow of the manufacturing process, the specifications for the media, the methods and equipment used for manufacturing, and the trade-offs or compromises that sometimes are required to achieve a manufacturing process for a commercial system. Unlike traditional optical media manufacturing where substrate thicknesses change, multiple layers are added, or other complications arise, the Tapestry media configuration, basis of manufacturing process and manufacturing equipment remain the same throughout the performance roadmap.
