We present a method for homogenizing the Fourier spectrum for holographic digital data storage by use of a phase spatial light modulator (SLM), and methods for the recovery of data from a phase image are implemented and discussed. Binary digital data are displayed on a phase SLM operating in 0 and π phase modes to optimally remove the intense dc peak so as to obtain a homogenized Fourier spectrum. Methods based on holographic interferometry have been developed and employed for recovery of the original amplitude data page from the phase-data page. A new edge-detection-based method also has been demonstrated and analyzed for reconstruction of the original data. Experimental results are presented to confirm the feasibility of these novel techniques.
