A sequential two-dimensional (2D) partial response maximum likelihood (PRML) detection scheme for holographic data storage (HDS) systems is proposed. We use two complexity reduction schemes, a reduced-state trellis and a constant-weight (CW) constraint. In the reduced-state trellis, the limited candidate bits surrounding the target bit are considered for the 2D PRML detector. In the CW constraint, the trellis transitions that violate the CW condition that each code-word block has only one white bit are eliminated. However, the 2D PRML detector using the complexity reduction schemes, which operates on 47 states and 169 branches, has performance degradation. To overcome performance degradation, a sequential detection algorithm uses the estimated a priori probability. By the sequential procedure, we mitigate 2D intersymbol interference with an enhanced reliability of the branch metric. Simulation results show that the proposed 2D PRML detection scheme yields about 3 dB gains over the one-dimensional PRML detection scheme.
