We introduce a two-dimensional interleaving method to improve the output accuracy of volume holographic correlators. The method redistributes the pattern of every input and stored image without changing their inner products, so it can eliminate the impact of correlation pattern difference on calculated inner product values. Experimental tests show that this method can achieve more accurate output intensity for every channel, which agrees much better with the theoretical value than without this method.
