We report on the holographic storage and recovery of multiple high capacity (800×600, 480 kbit) data pages in 250 μm and 500 μm thick photopolymer media. The data pages were recovered with raw bit error rates <5×10-3, the level correctable by current error correction strategies. Our results demonstrate that photopolymer systems can be fabricated with the optical quality and low level of scatter required for digital data storage.
