Abstract: Phase retrieval in holographic data storage by expanded spectrum combined with dynamic sampling method is proposed, which serves to both reduce media consumption and to shorten the iterative number of phase code retrieval. Generally, high-fidelity phase retrieval requires twice Nyquist frequency in phase-modulated holographic data storage. To increase storage density, we only recorded and captured the signal with Nyquist size and used the frequency expanded method to realize high-fidelity phase retrieval. In the decoding process, the iterative Fourier transform algorithm is used to retrieve the phase information of the reconstructed beam. The expanded spectrum is dynamically sampled, which can provide a faster convergence path for the phase retrieval. We aimed to demonstrate the possibility of integrating various methods on the Fourier domain and providing a potential way to improve the performance of holographic data storage systems. The simulation and experimental results proved the combination of processing methods in frequency spectrum was benefit.
