InPhase today said that it has developed the world’s first prototypes of holographic storage drives. The devices offer capacities of up to 1.6 TByte and may help move holographic storage from research to commercialization.

The prototypes are the first results of the firm’s research, which began in 2000 when the company was founded by Lucent. InPhase said that the prototype drives will be the foundation family of Tapestry holographic drives, with data capacities that range from 200 GByte to 1.6 TByte on a single disk.
