Bessel beams are non-diffracting beams with the ability to self-reconstruct after encountering an obstacle. We report the storage of such beams in a photorefractive LiNbO3 crystal via volume holography. A Bessel beam reconstructed from volume hologram exhibits non-diffraction up to a distance of 65.9 cm.
