The holographic double-exposure technique is applied to elementary gratings in photorefractive crystals. The result is an interconnection strength that is a continuous function of the phase shift between the two gratings. In fan-in and fan-out situations, where multiple phase gratings are required, it is possible to alter each interconnection separately without affecting the others.
