Using coupled wave theory and the law of refraction, diffraction properties of volume holograms are discussed. Reconfigurable interconnections by either wavelength tuning or spatial division techniques are proposed. Reflection type volume holograms can be used for a large number of reconfigurable interconnections in terms of finite wavelength tunability. Transmission volume holograms encoded in pinhole holograms can be easily reconfigured by spatial light modulator. Experimental demonstrations obtained by using these methods are presented.
